How to Join


Town Boards and Commissions serve a vital purpose in our community. They allow residents to have a voice in how we shape our neighborhoods and town, and evaluating what we should focus on for the future.

Available positions are filled on an annual basis by the Bennington Select Board. Any openings on a board or commission are published in the Bennington Banner and on the Town’s Website beginning in April (CLICK HERE). All standing board/commission is noted in the Annual Town Report. Anyone interested in serving on a board and/or commission is encouraged to send a letter of interest stating which board or commission you are interested in serving on to the address below.
