Community Inclusion Advisory Committee (two-year term)
- Serve as a representative of Dublin’s diverse communities, advise City Council on the unique needs of diverse Dublin residents, and review City policy through an inclusive lens.

- Read the ordinance that created this new committee.
- Seeking: 11 members to join 11-member group; youth representatives who live in Dublin may apply
