Thinking of serving on one of Needham's elected boards, committees, or commissions? Needham has ten elected boards, and all ten will have positions on the April 12 ballot. To help residents learn more about each of the elected boards, roles and responsibilities, terms of office, etc., the League and the Needham Channel have produced Needham's Elected Boards. Members from the ten elected boards provide insight into each board and the volunteer positions that keep the town running.
