Skokie is proud of its rich history of open government and participatory government. Over 250 Skokie residents serve on advisory boards and commissions. These volunteers contribute their time to planning, researching and analyzing issues affecting the quality of life in the Village.
Commissioners are appointed by the Mayor and approved by the Village Board of Trustees. Please consider this an invitation to participate in your local government by volunteering your time to help maintain this great community. Although acceptance of an appointment to a Commission requires a commitment on your part, you will find it rewarding and enriching as you become an integral part of Village government.
