Get InvolvedVolunteers who serve on Gilbert's Boards and Commissions play an important role in developing and sustaining our community. Our volunteers dedicate countless hours every year, lending their time and talents to help make Gilbert a better place to live, work and play. Some board and commission members apply professional or technical skills, while others simply bring a passion for Gilbert and a willingness to work as part of a team. Whatever board or commission they serve on, members are making a difference in the community.

Through participation in a board, committee or commission, Gilbert citizens can become involved in their local government, provide input, and make recommendations to the Town Council.

Sign up to be notified of a board, committee or commission opening.

Applications are available below as well as in the Clerk's Office. Once you have applied, you will be contacted via email that your application has been received. At that point the Council will review applications and determine which applicants will be invited for an interview.
