The Town of High River is looking for a few good people to fill some roles for boards and committee vacancies.

Jennifer Hogan, legislative and policy coordinator, says they filled most of the vacancies last fall but they still need a few more good people.

"We are looking for some more volunteers," said Hogan. "To get their applications in and be a part of something awesome in the community."

Boards and committee are regularly engaged as a resource for the Town of High River projects and they could lead projects on their own.

The current vacancies are as follows:

Arts & Culture Committee – 1 vacancy

Heritage Advisory Board – 2 vacancies

Policing Committee – 3 vacancies

Subdivision and Development Appeal Board – 1 vacancy (training is required)

Training is provided for the Subdivision and Development Appeal Board.

Term length can vary from one to three years and the time commitments can depend on the board.

For example, some boards and committees only meet when required, whereas others meet on a monthly basis for approximately three to four hours.

If you are interested in applying, all board and committee descriptions, governing bylaws and application forms can be found on the Town website at

Deadline for applications is January 31, 2018.
