By Lookout Staff
May 13, 2013 -- The Santa Monica Commission on the Status of Women -- which is actively implementing its 2010-2015 Strategic Plan -- is seeking applicants for openings starting July 1.
To join the volunteer commission, whose nine members are appointed by the City Council, applicants must be Santa Monica residents and "committed to attending meetings" every third Wednesday, City officials said. They also must be willing to "participate in additional projects, as necessary to achieve its Strategic Plan."
The panel, which was established in 1981, acts in an advisory role to the council and City Management on matters pertaining to women and girls in Santa Monica.
The Strategic Plan outlines key priorities that include "continuing to gather and understand data about girls and women in Santa Monica, creating awareness of domestic violence and safety issues (and) supporting mentoring and leadership opportunities," according to City officials.
The plan also fosters career, political and volunteer opportunities and identifies and publicizes resources in Santa Monica, officials said.
The commission meets at 7 p.m. on the second Wednesday of every month at Ken Edwards Center, 1527 4th Street.
Application forms and information are available at Santa Monica City Hall, 1685 Main Street, Santa Monica, Information Booth (lobby) or in the City Clerk’s Office, Room 102.
Applications are also accepted on an ongoing basis for future vacancies. Only the candidates appointed will be notified.
