Some 50 standing advisory groups provide input to the Arlington County Board on a variety of issues. From time to time, the Board also creates ad hoc committees and task forces for limited terms to focus on projects of immediate concern. At every January Organizational meeting, the Board designates a County Board liaison(PDF, 142KB) to each commission.
A number of groups also provide guidance to the County Manager on specific topics. Every meeting of each County advisory group is open to the public.
Arlington County government relies on the hard work of its many civic-minded volunteer commissioners to help it make decisions that benefit our community. We thank each commissioner for his or her service, and we invite you to apply for appointment to a commission.
