Board, Committee or Commission Vacancy Appointments

Volunteering in Your Community by Participating in Local Government

The Board of Selectmen actively encourages Pembroke residents to participate in local government by volunteering to serve on a board or committee. Serving on a board or committee takes dedication and commitment and your volunteer service is valued.

The Board of Selectmen has prepared an Appointed Committee Policies and Procedures Handbook for boards and committees appointed by the Board of Selectmen to aid in decision making when serving in their role. This handbook is intended to be a general guidance document for those serving on Town boards and committees.

PLEASE NOTE: You should plan to attend at least one (1) meeting of the board in which you are interested. They will play a large part in your appointment by making a recommendation to the Board of Selectmen.
