Seattle LGBT Commission seeks Candidates
The Seattle LGBT Commission (SLGBTC) is seeking candidates for vacant seats on the Commission. The Commission advises the Mayor, City Council and city departments on issues that impact the LGBT community in Seattle. The commission identifies areas of concern and recommends policy and legislative changes by providing feedback and opinions on issues of city, state budget, and acts as a liaison between the LGBT community and city government.
As advisors to the Mayor, City Council and city departments, commissioners have the opportunity to address issues of concern for LGBT communities in Seattle and to work for positive change. The Commission’s annual work plan is developed with input from the LGBT Community in Seattle. Terms are for two-years and are subject to confirmation by the City Council. Applicants must live or work in Seattle and be available for monthly meetings from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on the 3rd Thursday of the month at City Hall in downtown Seattle.
To apply for appointment to the Seattle LGBT Commission, submit your resume, a letter of interest, short bio and area of the city you live in by the March 6, 2012 deadline. All applications must be received by electronic submission to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The City of Seattle is committed to promoting diversity in the city's boards and commissions. Women, young persons, senior citizens, persons with disabilities, sexual and gender minorities, persons of color, and immigrants are encouraged to apply.
