Authorities, Boards and Commissions

Join Us in Moving Tulsa Forward!

Mayor G.T. Bynum is looking for Tulsans willing to donate their time, talent and energy to serve on a City of Tulsa Authority, Board or Commission. The City of Tulsa has dozens of citizen committees that cover a wide range of topics and appeal to a variety of interests. The Mayor and City Council rely on these volunteer citizen groups for thoughtful advice to create policies and develop programs.

The Mayor is looking for individuals from diverse backgrounds to apply to serve for all of these boards. For all mayor-appointed positions, you must be a Tulsa resident. Some boards have additional requirements. Learn more about each committee by reading the information below.
