Five Vacancies on City Events and Recognitions Committee

The Tacoma City Council is looking for applicants to fill three At-Large positions, one position representing Council District No. 1, and one position representing Council District No. 5 on the City Events and Recognitions Committee (CERC). 

The nine member committee consists 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. Committee members are recommended by the Economic Development Committee and appointed by the City Council. 

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.
