Boards & Commissions

Smithfield Boards & CommissionsThe Town of Smithfield is continually seeking volunteers to serve on various boards and commissions. These boards and commissions act as an advisory committee to the Town Council. Town residents with an interest in serving on any of these boards or commissions are encouraged to apply.  Meetings are generally held once a month on a weeknight; see each individual listing below for more detailed information.  To see a schedule of meetings for each board or commission, please visit the Town Calendar.

Online Boards & Commissions Database

Boards and Commissions are an important part of the Town’s governance, as they focus on specific areas of interest. OnBoard allows you to see who is currently serving on a Board or Commission, how to contact them, the membership history of that board, and each member’s history on all boards.

With this system Town residents can access this information without delay or inconvenience, should they want to volunteer, they can do so by checking the vacancies on various Boards or Commission.

As always it is important to allow our Town residents consistently new and updated technology.
