Apply to join a City Commission, Committee or Board

The City of Martinsburg seeks volunteers to serve on our various standing boards, commissions and committees. These appointed positions are filled by Martinsburg community members who are interested in public decision-making and civic life. It is important that the whole community be represented. We strive to have membership represent the full range of diversity in our community. 

Interested in applying for a position and sharing your experience and talents with the City? Check out our Boards and Commissions webpage for more information.  Current board and commission openings can be found under the "Mayor's Report" on each Council agenda.


From shelving library books to helping coach after-school sports, our volunteers are crucial to maintaining Martinsburg's high quality of life. Whether you’re looking to meet new people, learn valuable skills, spruce up your resume or simply better your community, volunteering with organizations, non-profits and agencies is a great way to reach your goals.
