People interested in serving on the Cambridge Commission for Persons with Disabilities advisory board are sought by the city. Applications must be in by Dec. 5 from residents who can serve on the 11-member volunteer board for a three-year term, helping maximize access to all aspects of community life for people with disabilities; raise awareness of disability matters; eliminate discrimination; and promote equal opportunity for people with all types of disabilities – physical, mental and sensory.

Members are expected to work with other members and board staff to fulfill the goals and objectives, attend monthly meetings (the second Thursday of every month at 5:30 p.m. in the second-floor conference room of 51 Inman St.), participate in subcommittees and work on various short- and long-term projects as needed.

For information, call Kate Thurman at (617) 349-4692 or send e-mail to [email protected]. Applicants must submit a letter describing their relevant experience and the kinds of disability-related issues or projects that interest them, along with a résumé if possible, to Robert W. Healy, city manager for the City of Cambridge, 795 Massachusetts Ave., Cambridge, MA 02139. The materials can also be faxed to (617) 349-4307 or sent via e-mail to [email protected].
