Applicants Sought for the City Events and Recognitions Committee


The Tacoma City Council is looking for applicants to fill the District Numbers 2, 4 and 5 positions, and one At-Large position on the City Events and Recognitions Committee (CERC). 


The 11-member committee is comprised of Tacoma residents, with representatives from each of Tacoma's five Council districts, who bring a range of perspectives and expertise that focus on the City’s commitment to celebrate civic engagement and special observations, are knowledgeable and passionate about volunteers and their valued contribution to their communities, and love to work with others to recognize those who give back. 


The CERC serves as an advisory and action committee on matters pertaining to City-hosted events and special recognition programs. The committee is responsible for planning, reviewing, and evaluating events, engaging the community in its fundraising efforts, and soliciting corporate and private sponsorships to leverage funds for City-hosted events such as the Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration and the City of Destiny Awards. All members must be Tacoma residents. If your Council district is unknown, please visit this link.
