The National Council of Jewish Women/Los Angeles, hosted a How to get Appointed to a Board or Commission workshop to teach members of the West Hollywood community what it takes to become an appointed official in the city of West Hollywood this past Sunday, February 11, at the NCJW/LA Council House.
The Getting Appointed to a Board or Commission Workshop was part of a Advocacy Training Project workshop series. This workshop series is co-sponsored by the City of West Hollywood Women’s Advisory Board, the City of West Hollywood Women’s Leadership Conference & Network, Planned Parenthood Los Angeles and the ACLU of Southern California.
Attendees learned how to get on a West Hollywood board or commission and why they’re so important, and how members can make a difference by serving.
Those who are interested, but could not attend the workshop, are encouraged to visit the city of West Hollywood’s Advisory Board and Commissions page in the City Hall section of the city’s website (weho.org). It has information on each Board, Commission and Working Group that individuals can join to get involved in the community. The page has links to applications, which once submitted, are kept active for a year. It is best if applicants live in West Hollywood, own a legitimate business entity in West Hollywood, work in the City of West Hollywood or for a business or agency that serves West Hollywood, but applicants can also have a strong connection to the city. The page also has a “Current Vacancies” link to monitor spaces available. As of the publishing of this piece, there is only one space available: Senior Advisory Board – One (1) Direct Appointment (Duran).
