Serving on a City of Sumter commission, board, or committee is one of the most effective ways for citizens to influence City policies and activities. Volunteering provides an opportunity for citizen participation in the process of government. Being a committee member also serves as a training ground for citizens to learn and increase their knowledge and skills by working with a variety of people on issues that might not otherwise be a part of their private lives.

To be eligible for an appointment, volunteers must have interest or knowledge in the committee’s subject matter. Volunteers should also be available to meet at the committee’s regular meeting time. Residency in the City of Sumter may be required.
