NOTE: Commission applications are rolling and are valid for two years. Appointments are made by the City of Tallahassee Commission, the Leon County Board of County Commissioners, and the Commission on the Status of Women and Girls (CSWG). The CSWG’s deadline for application submission is Wednesday, July 26, 2017 at 11:59 PM. Applications are still welcome after that date for consideration by the other appointing bodies or to fill vacancies that may occur within the Commission’s operating year. However, if you are interested in applying for one of the anticipated vacancies that is appointed by the CSWG, you must apply by July 26, 2017.

In July, we will be hosting two information sessions for potential applicants.  You are encouraged to attend one of the meetings, which will last approximately one hour.  The information sessions will be held:

These information sessions are open to the public; however, we ask that you register for the session you plan to attend  so that we can prepare accordingly. It is not required to attend an information session for your application to be considered.
