The arrival of spring would seem to be signalling not only a new season, but new opportunities for for residents of Prince Rupert to offer their volunteer services.

With the City of Prince Rupert opening the application process for three positions on the Boards of community groups, featuring an opportunity to become involved in a major tourist attraction for the region, serve the public library in the community or take on the challenges of watching over the city's aviation options in the region.

Last week the City put out the call for names for those interested in serving terms on the following local organizations.

Those with an interest in serving as the City's voice on the Boards have until March 28th to deliver their written application which describes the skills and experience that they could bring to the positions of interest.

With this call for volunteers, the City has also expanded the background information related to how they make appointments to Board positions.
