The City of Bloomington is seeking someone for a vacant seat on the Commission on the Status of Women. The seat is appointed by the City Council.

The Commission on the Status of Women advises the City Council and the mayor on women’s issues and offers solutions to problems and challenges women face in Bloomington, according to a City of Bloomington press release.

They seek gaps in resources for women and monitors policies that effect women, according to the group’s description on Bloomington’s website.

The commission usually meets the first Thursday of every month at Showers City Hall. It was first established in 1997.

There are no specific qualifications of applicants listed on the description, but it said the position requires a significant personal commitment. Applicants must answer short questions about why they are interested and why they are qualified.

Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.

The new commission member will join nine other members.

The city encourages applicants to attend a meeting of the commission before applying. For more information visit bloomington.in.gov/onboard.
