Volunteering on a Sussex committee or on a local board is one of the ways you can get involved and make a difference in our community. Committees provide advice to Council and staff on issues important to the public. Sussex is looking for residents that can assist Council in strengthening Sussex as a diverse and inclusive community.

How committees work and codes of conduct
Advisory committees hold public meetings to discuss topics within their mandate. Any person can attend a meeting or sign up to be a delegate before the committee.
Every committee elects a chair who presides over the public meetings. Committees also have non-voting staff members who provide advice to the committee, circulate agendas, and take minutes.
Committees are governed by the town’s committee policy and members are required to follow a code of conduct and conflict guidelines during their term of committee.
