Are you looking to make a meaningful impact in your community? Consider volunteering your time and
expertise by joining one of Abingdon’s various Town boards, committees, and commissions!

These citizen-led bodies play a crucial role in shaping the direction of our Town, in accordance with the
Town Charter. If you’re passionate about serving your community and want to contribute to its growth and
development, I invite you to apply to become a member of one of these vital groups.
