Want To Volunteer For A Committee?

Why Not Get Involved?

Lombard’s strong tradition of volunteerism carries over into Village government. Nearly 100 residents serve on various Boards, Committees and Commissions. These residents provide additional representation between citizens and their elected officials. A brief summary of the purpose of the boards, committees and commissions is included below. Obviously we cannot itemize all of the activities of each of these groups; however, any questions pertaining to any of these can be directed to the Village President at (630) 620-5712. 

*Please note that applications will be held for 1 year of submission date. If you would like to be considered for a Committee moving forward, please ensure that you submit a new application each year.
