All boards, commissions, and committees consist of volunteers who contribute their time for the benefit of Dedham. These committees work toward solving complex issues and recommending policy that helps to shape the kind of community in which we live. Dedham is fortunate to have many volunteers whose skill and technical knowledge can be applied in the Town Government.

There are often times various opportunities available, which may correspond with your expertise and/or interest. Terms of office vary, and are described on each board, commission or committee page.  View the Boards & Committee Vacancies Page to view information on current vacancies.
