Boards & Committees

Serving on a board or committee is an excellent opportunity to share your expertise and abilities and to give back to your community.

Board and committee members represent community members who provide invaluable perspectives on issues that are important to Blackfalds' residents. These dedicated community volunteers are impartial, diverse, and independent, and bring varied skills, backgrounds and experience to the table. 

In October of every year, Town Council appoints residents to boards and committees or as positions become vacant.
