  • Real Property Tax Assessment Board of Review I (1)
  • Real Property Tax Assessment Board of Review III (1)

  • Economic Revitalization Commission (9)

The new Economic Revitalization Commission was created to "help prepare a five-year strategic plan for the city to encourage equitable and sustainable economic advancement, the development of new businesses and industries, and reinvestment."

Boards and commissions streamline communication between elected officials and the community. Members do not receive a salary or other forms of financial compensation.

Members are typically appointed by the mayor and approved by the Honolulu City Council.

To apply for a vacant position, send a cover letter and resume to mdoffice@honolulu.gov.
