Boards, Commissions, Authorities & Advisory Committees

Boards, Commissions, Authorities, & Advisory Committees give citizens a voice in their government. They provide a means to influence decisions that shape the quality of life for citizens. Participating on a Board, Commission, Authority, or Advisory Committee is one of the most effective ways that a citizen can have an active voice in their government.

The City of Valdosta provides numerous opportunities for citizens to serve the community through various Boards, Commissions, Authorities and Advisory Committees. A policy for appointment to these entities was unanimously adopted by the Mayor and Council in 2008 with the primary goal of providing a greater opportunity for citizens of the City of Valdosta to participate in these entities and to establish an official process for making appointments.
