First, attend a meeting of the Community Board. Also, anyone can speak at the general board meeting by signing up prior to the meeting for the public session. All speakers are limited to a maximum of two minutes unless otherwise acknowledged by the board chair.
In addition, join one or more of our committees. By attending and participating in a committee meeting, you get firsthand exposure to how the committees function and the types of issues they routinely discuss. You can apply to be a non-board member of a committee by inquiring at the District Office for details.
Finally, apply for membership to the Community Board. Many non-Board Members who join committees eventually are interested in applying for Board membership. You may do so by contacting the Bronx Borough President's Office at (718) 590-6001.
