Some local governments, like the City of Santa Ana, have boards and commissions. Boards and commissions are advisory groups that study specific policy areas and report to the City Council about the work they do when they meet together. This helps the City Council deliberate on common municipal issues that affect the city. We are always looking for people to apply to serve on these boards and commissions. Learn more below about how to participate.
The following applies to most advisory boards/commissions: you must be a Santa Ana resident and not serve as a treasurer of a political action committee.
Terms of appointment
Most members serve for a term of four years, with a maximum of three full terms and until their respective successors are appointed and qualified. The terms run concurrent with the term of the appointing City Councilmember. The Mayoral representatives serve for two years, up to four consecutive terms.
