You may also download an application from the MPRB Committee Appointments page or call MPRB Customer Service at 612-230-6400 to request an application, fill it out and submit it via email or mail:

  • Email to [email protected] 
  • Mail to Board Secretary; Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board; 2117 West River Road North; Minneapolis MN 55417

Service commitment may vary based upon needs, expectations and policy goals. However, most committee members can expect to work approximately 10-15 hours per month. Terms for the appointments to the committees listed above are one year and there are no term limits. 

Some advisory committees have a need for specialized skills, but most people will find a committee that is a great fit for their knowledge base. Public members of advisory committees may not have regular, ongoing experience in a specific topic, but have a general interest in an advisory committee's work area. Serving on an advisory committee is a wonderful opportunity to learn more about an area of interest and contribute a fresh and unique perspective. 

Applications are due by 4:30 pm on Friday, December 9, 2022.  Following submission, applicants will receive an email confirming receipt of the application and describing the general process for appointment. Appointments for open positions will be made at the January 3, 2023 meeting of the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board.
