The Town of Okotoks encourages residents to get involved in the community by participating on one of Council's Boards, Committees, Commissions or Task Forces.
The time requirement as a board or committee member varies based on the board - some meet twice a month while others only meet as required. The length of each meeting can also vary significantly. Appointment terms range from 1 to 3 years; youth positions are generally one year (school term).
Your attendance at meetings is important so when considering a board to apply for, please ensure it is one that will fit your schedule. You will be expected to participate in the meetings by offering views, voting and advising Council. To ensure that confidentiality and ethical standards are maintained, citizens appointed to a board, committee or commission will be required to sign the Town of Okotoks Code of Conduct.
Council considers citizen appointments to boards and committees on an annual basis in the fall; however, vacancies also occasionally arise during the year. Annual appointments and vacancies are advertised in the local paper and posted on this website.
Currently there are citizen members required on the Family and Community Support Services Committee, Okotoks Public Library Board and the United Way/Okotoks Partnership Committee. Submit your online application below:
You many also submit a resume and letter indicating which board/committee you are interested in and drop-off at the Municipal Centre, 5 Elizabeth Street; mail to the Town of Okotoks, Box 20, Station Main, Okotoks, AB T1S 1K1; or submit a hard copy through the Town's contact form. Citizens appointed to a board, committee, commission, or society will be required to sign the Town of Okotoks Code of Conduct.
