The City of Lake Oswego is continuing to provide essential services. In addition, we're exploring new "no-contact" options in order to reduce exposure to COVID-19 while providing programs and services.  Updates, information on City services, and COVID-19 resources.

Boards & Commissions Vacancies

Our annual recruitment for our Boards and Commissions has been postponed.  We originally were opening up the application period on April 1, but to be consistant with our efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19, we will consider accepting applications at a later date.  Thank you for your interest in serving your community.  Citizen volunteers are essential to conducting city business and we look forward to serving along side you soon! 

In early 2019, the City transitioned to an annual recruitment for all boards and commissions.  Our hope is that with this single annual effort and a larger marketing outreach, we will create a greater awareness to attract and engage more members of our community.

To apply for a volunteer position on a City of Lake Oswego board, commission, or committee, please follow the link below to the application for your area of interest. The application is designed to be completed online and is submitted by clicking the submit button at the end of the form. You will receive confirmation of receipt on the webpage immediately, and staff will be in touch regarding your application after the closing date to set up an interview time.   

Please note that you may apply for more than one Board or Commission, but may only be appointed to serve on one Board or Commission at one time. 

Lake Oswego is a safe, caring, and respectful community - all are encouraged to apply!
