The City of Bend is seeking three new volunteer committee members to serve on the City of Bend Accessibility Advisory Committee (COBAAC).

The committee acts as a group of advisors to the City Manager.

The Committee does this by elevating recommendations to the City Manager through the Equity Department.

Individuals selected for committee membership can expect to dedicate four hours per month to COBAAC activities. These activities include attending a meeting of the full committee held on the fourth Thursday of each month, along with other activities and meetings in support of the committee’s purpose. Members are appointed by the City Manager to an initial three-year term and may be considered for a second three-year term.
