For Women

We encourage you to submit your credentials for opportunities to help shape your local community.

Serving on local advisory and regulatory boards not only involves women in governance, it expands one’s capabilities for future leadership possibilities. Being a community role model for women and girls can be a first step to increasing one’s career and political opportunities.

Women are encouraged to find out how the application, nomination and confirmation processes work in their counties and communities. It is important that qualified women not underestimate their value; some seats require only that one live in a specific community. Women should
apply and let local governments consider their needs against the applicant’s qualifications.
