"Hmmm, I wonder what it's like to be a volunteer on a City board? Is there one coming up soon?"

The answer is Yes! Later today (Monday, May 9th), the Sister City Board meets at the City Hall Conference Room at 5:30. The room is next to the City Commission chambers at 7 North Dixie Hwy. This board would be a great way to "get your feet wet" so to speak and possibly inspire you to become a volunteer. Here is what the board is tasked with doing:

"Board initiates, plans, sponsors, organizes and promotes cultural exchanges for the City of Lake Worth. Members also act as the City’s official hosts for international guests. Members serve for two years."

Some boards have liaison from the City Commission. For instance, the liaison for the City's Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) is Commissioner Andy Amoroso. The liaison for the Sister City Board is Commissioner Chris McVoy, according to the City's website.

Here is agenda for the Sister City Board:
  • Roll call
  • New board members
  • Sunshine Law
  • Goals and objectives
  • Adjournment
This meeting will be a very short one. Come out, see what it's like, and hopefully you'll be inspired to consider other volunteer boards in the City as well.
