The manager serves as an ex-officio (i.e. non-voting) member of multiple city boards and committees, such as the Convention and Tourism Committee, Park Board, etc.  The manager also represents the city on a number of non-profit boards, including the Augusta Chamber of Commerce, Downtown Augusta Inc., and Augusta Progress Inc.
