Scottsdale offers handful of volunteer posts for those interested

Residents wanting to volunteer their time and institute a positive change in Scottsdale are invited to apply to serve.

Scottsdale community steward Sam Campana, who is a former mayor of the community and current library board volunteer, says a volunteer is serving one’s self amid service to others.

“As a volunteer it’s fun and intriguing to learn all the hard work that goes into making our libraries such welcoming learning centers. There is huge satisfaction in giving back to our community through commission service,” she said in a prepared statement. “My mother was our school librarian where I grew up in Idaho, so this opportunity is especially meaningful.”

Openings are available on four boards and commissions:

  • Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee (one [1] opening)
  • Historic Preservation Commission (one [1] opening)
  • Library Board (one [1] opening)
  • Tourism Development Commission (one [1] opening for a Scottsdale hotelier)

Interested applicants must submit an online application by Thursday, June 1. Submitted applications are valid for one year.

Scottsdale City Council will review materials and nominate candidates from the applicant pool and hold interviews and appointments in June. All board and commission members are required to comply with the city’s Ethics Code and attend a training session before officially beginning their term.

Find Information about the functions of these boards and commissions at, search “Boards and Commissions.”
