First, one begins by attending Community Board meetings. Additionally, if anyone would like to speak at the Public Session of the General Board Meeting they need only to e-mail or fax their request to the Board Office. All speakers are limited to a maximum of three (3) minutes unless otherwise acknowledged by the Board Chair.
Second, join one or more of the Board committees. By attending and participating you would get firsthand exposure to how committees function and the types of issues that are discussed. You can apply at the Board Office in the district where you either live and/or work.
Third, you can apply for membership to the Community Board by contacting the Bronx Borough President's Office of Community Board Affairs at 718-590-3500.
