Commission & Advisory Board Membership

Residents are encouraged to participate in the Village of Northbrook. By serving on a Village Commission or Advisory Board, you can participate in planning the future of Northbrook. Many of these commissions and boards are making recommendations that will greatly affect life in Northbrook. It is important that prospective members of our commissions and boards clearly understand the functions and responsibilities of membership before actively seeking appointment. A great deal of personal satisfaction, knowledge and experience may be gained through service to your community.

Attendance & Compensation


Commissioners are expected to diligently attend and participate in all meetings of the commission. All Commissioners serve without compensation, on a volunteer basis.
