The Town relies extensively upon the expertise of residents who serve on Town Boards, Commissions, and Corporations.  These volunteers have been an important part of the Town structure since Trophy Club was incorporated in 1985.  We are blessed with amazing volunteers and hope the tradition of an active resident volunteer base in Trophy Club continues.  Please apply if you have the time, passion, and/or interest to serve on any Board, Commission, or Corporation.  Thank you for your interest in serving our Community!

Anyone interested in serving on a Board, Commission, or Corporation must first fill out the Town’s Board and Commission Application.  Applications will be received until July 28, 2017, then interviews will be scheduled during August for possible appointment, and recommendations will be considered by the Town Council in September.

Attendance
If a member of a Board, Commission, or Corporation fails to attend three (3) consecutive regular meetings without being excused by the Board, Commission, or Corporation, that member’s appointment may be declared forfeited by the Town Council. A member who is unable to attend a meeting shall notify the Staff Liaison of his/her inability to attend the meeting and shall provide an explanation of the conflict or other reason that prevents his/her attendance.

 

Audio files of Board, Commission and Corporation meetings are uploaded to SoundCloud for public review. Agendas, Minutes and Financials are also available online. 

In addition, Trophy Club residents may volunteer at the county level as well. Both Denton Central Appraisal District and Tarrant Appraisal District allow all taxing jurisdictions to select individuals to serve on their Board of Directors and Appraisal Review Boards.
