The Board of Aldermen appoint citizens to serve on advisory boards and commissions. These volunteers perform a vital role in our community by contributing their time, expertise and talent to the Town. As advisory board members, they serve willingly and without compensation. They interpret town codes, they counsel and advise elected officials and they listen to citizen appeals.

The Town of Carrboro receives applications for upcoming vacancies on its advisory boards on a continuous basis.
