City invites residents to apply for advisory board seats

The city of Hendersonville is inviting community members to participate in local government by serving on a board, committee or commission.

Serving on local government boards is one of the leading ways residents can make a positive impact on the future of Hendersonville. The City Council is accepting applications for a variety of board appointments. Applications received by May 5 will be considered at the City Council’s regular June meeting.  

Hendersonville strives for diverse representation on boards and commissions. Residents of all backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
