Committee members serve as advocates- taking an active role in supporting community efforts, events, and issues. Participating on a committee provides individuals with the opportunity to make a difference in their community. All those who live in Homer Township, including those who live in the incorporated Township areas of Homer Glen and Lockport are eligible for membership. (Don’t forget that even if you have a mailing address for Lemont, Orland Park, Mokena, or New Lenox, you can still be within the boundaries of Homer Township too!) Effective committee participation is essential to the success of the community. As a committee member, you can help direct committee goals and objectives, and be a part of achieving those goals! Diverse backgrounds and ideas on committees bring together many new ideas and opinions that might not otherwise be heard.
