How to get involved in Wellesley Town Government

From the Town of Wellesley:

Volunteers are, and have always been, an integral part of Wellesley Town Government. It is volunteers, elected or appointed, who make policy, serve on committees, give of their time and talents, and make the Town what it is. The Board of Selectmen are charged with making a number of these appointments to town boards which they do annually in late spring for the ensuing fiscal year that begins on July 1.

Do you have a special interest in a particular area or a talent you are willing to share? Would you just like to become involved? We encourage you to contact us and make your interest known. The Board of Selectmen follow their Appointments Policy to select persons to serve on boards/committees, including:

  • Council on Aging
  • Cultural Council
  • Veterans Council

If you would like to be considered for one of these positions, you can apply online or download the application and email it to, or mail it to us at Town Hall, 525 Washington Street, Wellesley, MA 02482. For July 1, 2018 appointments, please respond by June 1st.
