Interested in Serving on a Town Committee?
Members of Town Boards and Committees are volunteers who enjoy spending a few hours (usually in the evening) with their fellow residents helping the Town of Acton run efficiently while remaining a pleasant place to live. There are currently more than 30 boards and committees dealing with a broad range of Town and regional interest.
For further information on a certain board or committee, follow the link to that board's page. Another excellent way to find out what a board or committee does is to attend its meetings. The meetings of all boards and committees are listed in the calendar on this website. It is recommended that you verify the meeting schedule before the meeting because sometimes they change.
Members of most of the Town boards and committees are appointed by the Board of Selectmen. The Town Manager and Town Moderator also appoint member to boards. To apply, please fill out the Acton Volunteer Application and deliver it to the Town Manager's Office located at Town Hall, 472 Main St.
