Volunteer

Our town government is enhanced by the hard work and dedication of its Board and Commission volunteers. It is these very volunteers whose work and talents help make Wilton such a vibrant community.  This page contains information for those both considering serving and those currently serving.

Considering Volunteering?

The following is a list of Board / Commission positions with vacancies or anticipated upcoming vacancies.  Information about each Board/Commission can be obtained on the webpage for the Board/Commission:
