Volunteer Wanted – Economic Development Commission

VOLUNTEER WANTED – ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMISSION

The Town of Simsbury is seeking a volunteer to fill a recently vacated slot on its new Economic Development Commission.  Per Town Charter, because the resignation occurred by a registered Democrat, the slot must be filled by an individual registered with the Democratic Party.  The desired skill sets and qualifications for the vacant slot include: land use or architectural expertise; or marketing, public relations, or communications expertise. 

The Economic Development Commission consists of seven voting members appointed to three year terms.  The Commission serves as an advisory board to the Board of Selectmen, and is responsible for assisting with promoting and developing the economic resources of the Town, and in conjunction with the Town Manager, advancing the Town’s economic development goals as defined by the Board of Selectmen.  The Commission meets monthly, and more often as needed as special projects or initiatives arise.

Interested individuals should visit https://simsburyctboards.vt-s.net/ and click on “New Volunteer Form” to submit an application.  Volunteers are encouraged to apply as soon as possible. The Board of Selectmen Economic Development Work Group will review submitted applications and will meet with candidates selected for an interview.
