What are the requirements for membership on a board or commission?
  • Membership is open to all Lynchburg citizens. Unless otherwise noted, the only requirement for service is that the applicant lives within Lynchburg City limits. County residents may serve on boards and commissions that represent the Central Virginia region: Lynchburg Regional Airport Commission and Business Development Centre Board.
  • All members of City boards and commissions are required to attend at least 75% of the yearly committee meetings. Absences may be excused because of personal illness or serious illness of members of the immediate family, death of a family member, unscheduled or unforeseen business trips, and emergency work assignments only. All other absences are recorded as unexcused.
