Consider a volunteer role on a District of Sparwood committee or board

The District of Sparwood citizen committees provide Council and staff with input about a wide variety of subjects through discussions, presentations and recommendations. Some committees also organize and participate in community events. The District encourages citizens who represent the diverse backgrounds of our community to participate on these committees.

Volunteering on a board or committee is a great way to:

  • meet new people
  • share your talents
  • develop skills
  • address a common interest
  • make a difference in your community 

Becoming a member of a committee or board offers residents a unique chance to volunteer their highly valued skills and to strengthen our shared sense of community.  Email sparwood@sparwood.ca for more information on how to participate on a committee or board.
