Boards and Commissions

Interested in local issues? Serving on a board and/or commission is an opportunity to collaborate with local government and to help shape decisions that impact our community. Citizens of Graham, or of Graham’s extraterritorial jurisdiction (ETJ), can be appointed by the City Council to serve on these boards and commissions. There are also seats available for residents of Graham or those living in Graham’s Extraterritorial Jurisdiction (ETJ) appointed by the Alamance County Commissioners. Check out all of the ways in which you can volunteer to serve your community.
