Advisory Neighborhood Commissioners (ANC)

Do You Know Your ANC?

Here is quick quiz for you. Who is the ANC commissioner for your SMD? If you are trying to determine what ANC and SMD stand for, here you go:

The first Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC) elections were held in February 1976. Under the law, each ANC Single Member District (SMD) is comprised of approximately 2,000 residents. Commissioners serve two-year terms and receive no salary.

Your ANC commissioners are elected officials who represent our community on a broad range of issues relevant to the neighborhood.

The ANCs are the body of government with the closest official ties to the people in a neighborhood. The ANCs present their positions and recommendations on issues to various District government agencies, the Executive Branch, and the Council.

In order for our ANC to fully function, it relies on the active participation of the residents. How can you get involved? Check the map and figure out who is your commissioner. Go to meetings, share concerns or feedback with commissioners, suggest agenda items, and provide assistance to the commissioner that represents you.
