Denver is a growing and diverse city. Each one of us can contribute to our city. We need your help by taking the time to serve as an active member of a board or commission. Appointments to boards and/or commissions are a vital part of local government and provide for direct citizen involvement in city affairs. Working together we can successfully prepare for our city’s future.
Mayor Michael B. Hancock appoints approximately 700 people to serve on over 130 City and County of Denver Boards and Commissions. Our office manages this process of recruiting, interviewing and recommending candidates.
Please review our list of boards and commissions if you are interested in considering yourself and/or others in the community who can contribute and influence city policies by serving on one of these boards or commissions.
PLEASE NOTE: * Indicates Boards and Commissions that need Council Confirmation (added three-week time frame).
Civic engagement, defined as, “Active participation and collaboration among individuals, government and the private sector to influence and determine decisions that affect the citizen public”, is the cornerstone of our democracy.

Please keep in mind that this content is only indicative of boards and/or commissions for which the Mayor appoints applicants. Your application will be kept on file for a period of two years, during which time you will be considered for any vacancies.

Certain boards and/or commissions may require special qualifications, i.e. professional licensing or experience, and geographic location.
