Advisory Council Member Interest Form

Are you interested in investing your time and expertise to support programming and operations as an Advisory Council Member for Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) and their non-profit partner, Associated Recreation Council (ARC)?  We are rebuilding our volunteer Advisory Councils and are actively recruiting new members. 

As a member of the Advisory Council, you serve a unique role as an advisor and advocate for SPR and ARC and their partnership programs and activities.  Advisory council members are volunteer representatives of ARC operating in alignment with SPR.  Councils typically meet 1-2 hours, once per month, 8 months out of the year, with additional time spent on special projects determined by the council in support of SPR staff and programs.

General responsibilities of an Advisory Council are to:

  • Gather input from communities to inform programming
  • Advise on programs and activities to enhance quality 
  • Fundraise to support and expand programming
  • Assist in planning special events and attend as a volunteer
  • Promote opportunities to increase participation
  • Advocate to SPR on behalf of community and on behalf of SPR to elected officials
