The Office of the City Clerk is taking inventory of work already completed in this area and identifying where additional input is needed. In September, 2018, the Civic Agencies team will conduct a review of the City’s recruitment practices for agencies, boards, and committees and will consult with various committees, City Administration, and other municipalities for ideas and practices for reaching a diverse audience and ensuring that the recruitment process meets the needs of the committees and applicants.  The intent is to identify changes that can be implemented for the 2019 recruitment process.
