The Town of Andover is seeking volunteers to serve on Town boards and committees. Appointed members help provide policy direction for the Town on a variety of areas and subject matters. Andover has over 40 boards and committees that rely on the service of resident volunteers.
Many vacancies for boards and committees occur on June 30th of each year, but the Town is always looking for volunteers to submit their interests through Andover’s Talent Bank Form. The Talent Bank Form allows individuals to submit which boards and committees that they may be interested in serving. If there is not a vacancy, forms are kept on file for when a vacancy may occur. Upon completing a Talent Bank Form, submitters receive a notice from the Town Manager’s Office that includes information about the next steps and other ways to stay engaged with town government.
“Andover relies on the passionate and dedicated service of our volunteers who serve on boards and committees,” said Annie Gilbert, Chair of the Andover Select Board. “We are always so grateful for the expertise and perspective our residents bring to our governance process.”
“Serving on a board or committee is a great way to participate in the local government process,” said Town Manager Andrew P. Flanagan. “The contributions of our appointed volunteers are essential to the success of our organization.”
The Talent Bank Form, found at www.andoverma.gov/volunteer outlines all of the Boards and Committees in town. It also allows users to provide their availability and background so that they can be matched with the right committee.
While applications are accepted throughout the year for all Boards and Committees, the following Boards and Committees currently have vacancies:
