There are over 300 boards and commissions in the City of New York that fall under the Mayor's purview. These boards deal with virtually every public policy area and interact with every city agency. They are a vital part of the City government, making critical policy decisions and advising the Mayor and agencies on a wide range of pressing issues. Boards are composed of a combination of citizens, government employees, and policy experts – all individuals that work tirelessly to serve the city. The Office of Appointments works to ensure that these boards function at their full capacity through the appointment of highly qualified individuals that represent a diverse array of city interests.
The City’s boards represent an active subset of City government – boards are continually being created to advise on new issues, and boards cease to exist after their purpose has been served. As such, the number of boards is always in flux. Below is a list of some of the active boards in the City, with links to their websites when available.
