Boards & Committees

The Town of High River has a variety of boards and committees appointed by council that cover a wide range of topics that help guide and shape the town.

Sitting on a Board or Committee

Volunteering to sit on a municipal board or committee is a great way for residents to make a difference in the community and to share their knowledge, experience and ideas. Boards and committees are regularly engaged as a resource for Town of High River projects, or may lead projects on their own. Term length can range from one to three years depending on the vacancy that is open. Time commitments vary depending on the board and committee. For example, some boards and committees only meet when required, whereas others meet on a monthly basis for approximately three to four hours. Apply to be on a Board or Committee.
