Chicago Area Gay And Lesbian Chamber Of Commerce issued the following announcement on Feb. 4.
On February 3, 2020, the City of Chicago released an open call for applications to fill vacancies in several community advisory councils including:
The Equity Advisory Council
The LGBTQ+ Advisory Council
The Women's Advisory Council
The Veteran's Advisory Council
The New American's Advisory Council
The purpose of the advisory councils is to support the Mayor’s Office in engaging target populations and advising policy solutions to meet the needs of its community. Members of advisory councils will evaluate current municipal policies and programs, connect with residents and subject matter experts to assess structural improvements, act as a sounding board to consider new initiatives, and attend community events and meetings as a representative of the advisory council.
All advisory council members must live in the City of Chicago throughout the term and agree to undergo a background check. Applications will be evaluated based on (1) connection to targeted populations, both personal and professional; (2) evidence of engagement in local community, civic leadership, or volunteerism; (3) a personal commitment to equity and inclusion; and, (4) a demonstrated ability to engage the broader community of local networks, community members, and stakeholders.
If selected, each advisory council member serves up to a three-year term and attends, at minimum, meetings each quarter. Applications will be accepted up until February 15, 2020. Feel free to contact email@example.com with any questions.
Please complete this application form with the best of your ability. Fields marked with an asterisk (*) are required. Thank you for your interest in serving on a Chicago advisory council.
