Throughout the year, the City of Asheville has various openings on various boards, commissions and committees. Have you ever wanted to make a difference? Have you wondered, “Can the City benefit from my experience and knowledge?” Do you want to have a voice in the City’s growth and future? Do you want to be a part of the body that is responsible for making decisions regarding policy, service and education? If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, then it’s time to take that initial step forward and put your perspective, leadership and knowledge to task by serving on one of the many committees we have to offer.
There is currently a vacancy on the Hub Community Economic Development Alliance Board — The Hub Project is Asheville and Buncombe County’s collaborative, sustainable, intentional community, cultural and economic development strategy. The HUB is described as a catalyst for collaboration around a coordinated economic and community development vision of what Asheville and Buncombe County can become. The Alliance works to stimulate interaction and collaboration within and across clusters identified by the Alliance — technology, rejuvenation, creativity, land/ag, enterprise/entrepreneurship, and advanced manufacturing. The Alliance will monitor and publicize progress via concrete metrics. The Alliance will support clusters and projects by raising funds from public and private sources.
The deadline for receiving applications for this opening is 5 p.m. March 2. Please contact the City Clerk’s Office at 828-259-5601 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org for an application form.
