Apply to become a Manhattan Community Board Member!
Any city resident 16 or older can join!
The only requirement is that you live or work in the district where you'd like to serve.
Community Boards are the independent and representative voices of their communities—the most grass-roots form of local government.
The Boards are pivotal in shaping their communities and work to enhance and preserve the character of the city’s many unique neighborhoods. Manhattan’s 12 Community Boards are composed of 50 volunteer members serving staggered two-year terms– thus, 25 members are appointed (or reappointed) each year.
Applications are open now. Deadline is Tuesday, March 1, 2022. To join, visit: https://manhattanbp.nyc.gov/communityboards/
