    Boards & Commissions



    All Boards and Commissions are subject to the following rules and regulations of the annually updated Code of Virginia:

    Virginia Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)

    Virginia Conflict of Interests Act  (COIA)

    Virginia Public Records Act (PRA)

    Individuals must complete an application to identify any special skills, experience or educational preparation which might be helpful to a board or commission.  A separate application is required for the School Board.  

    Most boards require residency within the City of Lynchburg. Board and commission members are expected to attend at least 75% of scheduled meetings, and membership is usually limited to three consecutive terms.

    Browse through the list of volunteer opportunities below and consider submitting an application for membership to one of these City Council-appointed boards. City Council will fill vacancies as they become available, reviewing applications from the volunteer pool throughout the year. Thank you for your willingness to serve.
