About Committees & Committee Membership

Community Boards are mandated by the City Charter to meet at least once a month - except during July and August. Much of the monthly meeting time is dedicated to reviewing and acting upon the work of the Board’s committees. It is at the committee level that the bulk of the Community Board's work is done.

Queens Community Board 3 has 19 committees. Committee Membership

Board Members - Each Board member is typically a member of two, but not more than four committees. Committee Chairs are chosen by the Board's Chair.

Community Board 3 has 19 standing committees. A Board member must chair each committee.

Public Members - The City Charter allows community residents to participate on Board committees. To join a committee a resident should write to the Board Chair requesting membership on a particular committee. The Board's Chair appoints such members after consultation with the committee chairperson. Public members may vote at committee meetings, with their votes are tallied and reported separately.

Public members provide an opportunity to draw upon additional expertise and manpower that exists in the community. It is also a method for recruiting potential Board members.
