What is the appointment process?
  • A citizen interested in serving on a board completes an application and returns it to the:
    Clerk of Council
    900 Church Street
    Lynchburg, VA 24504
  • As an application is received, it is reviewed and then the individual's name is added to the appropriate volunteer waiting list. The Clerk of Council maintains a list of applicants for each board.
  • When a vacancy occurs, the Clerk forwards the names of the applicants to City Council for consideration.
  • Following appointment to a board, the individual is notified in writing of the appointment along with the term expiration date. All appointees (including those re-appointed) are required to take an oath of office, and some boards require financial disclosure forms.
