Resources for Boards and Commissions

Boards and Commissions play a vital role in Metropolitan Government.Citizens who volunteer to serve Metro Boards and Commissions participate in the process of establishing policy and making quasi-judicial decisions.


Board and Commission members are required to complete sexual harassment and diversity awareness training to comply with the Mayor’s Executive Order No.010.

Members may receive this required training by scheduling a training session through the Board/Commission administrative representative. Training sessions can be scheduled immediately prior to a scheduled Board/Commission meeting or set up a special session. If you have any questions please contact your Board/Commission representative or Dirk Essary, Human Resources at 615-862-4344 or via email at
