Hillsborough County commissioners are seeking residents to serve on several county citizen advisory boards, committees and councils. Residents interested in seeking appointment must reside in and be registered voters in Hillsborough County. These are voluntary positions, and members serve without compensation. Applicants may apply to more than one group but may only serve on one group at a time unless specifically approved by the Hillsborough County Board of County Commissioners.

All applicants must submit a completed ‘Questionnaire for County Appointments’ and a ‘Standards of Conduct’ form. Additional requirements are in the information that follows.

Forms are available on the county’s website at www.hcflgov.net. To download a form, click on the ‘Government’ and then the ‘Boards and Committees’ tabs/links.

If you apply to a board, committee or council that requires a background check, you will be provided with a link to complete the online background check process. A response within 48 hours is required, at which time the link will expire.
