Dear Propel Pittsburgh Applicant:


            I would like to thank you for your interest in the Propel Pittsburgh Commission. Your application materials and resume were reviewed and at this time we are unable to select you as a commissioned member of the Propel Pittsburgh Commission.  We received over 450 applications from excellent candidates and it made the selection process difficult because of the great talent that exists in the City of Pittsburgh. Even though you weren’t selected, your resume and application will remain active until May 1, 2008 and you could be considered for other vacancies on other boards, commissions, or authorities or Propel Pittsburgh if vacancies occur throughout the year. 


            I want to encourage you to continue to check the current openings on boards, commissions, or authorities that can be viewed on the City’s website. The Propel Pittsburgh Commission will consist of several sub-committees and focus groups upon its establishment and we will be extending the opportunity for non-commissioned members to be involved. If you showed interest in another commission, your application and resume were forwarded for consideration.
