Cuyahoga County Boards & Commissions


Tell Us What You ThinkA major goal of Cuyahoga County is to ensure all voices are valued, respected and heard.  This goal is accomplished in part by Citizen Policy Making and Advisory Boards and Commissions. Each board and commission is governed by the laws and regulations that have authorized them. Members represent the specific mission of the boards or commission to which they have been appointed.  We encourage you to consider applying for a position to strengthen and expand relationships with community partners.

The Executive has appointing authority subject to the confirmation by the Council. The Department of Regional Collaboration works alongside the County Executive to select highly qualified people from all backgrounds, neighborhoods and communities, and to seek out and encourage those people who have been traditionally under-represented in the public policy decision making process.  

Application Process:
