Boards, Commissions & Committees

Representatives from the Municipal District of Taber and other members of the community are involved in many different boards, commissions and committees (BCCs) that help guide and shape our community's future direction. BCCs provide members of Council with information, advice and recommendations regarding important community issues and topics.

BCCs are made up of a combination of residents, organizational representatives, MD staff representatives and members of Council. All BCCs are voluntary, and typically no remuneration or benefits are offered to BCC members.
