Staff: The Advisory Body must be in compliance with the new bylaws policy before recruiting members. It is important that bylaws are updated to bring all groups into compliance with State Laws around Public Meetings, Public Records, Public Officials and more. The Advisory Bodies Program has a template that has been pre-approved by the City Attorney's Office for the minimum requirements to compliance. Please visit this website to view templates and instructions.

If you are a staff liaison who has already submitted your approved, updated bylaws, please visit this website for recruitment posting instructions.
