State Boards & Commissions: Search Filing Entities

Our database includes the members of every board and commission's board of directors, the term of their appointment and who made the appointment. For those with a yen for public service, our database can also be used to identify opportunities to serve on a state board or commission.

If you would like to be considered for appointment to a Board or Commission where the Governor is the appointing authority, you can complete the appointment questionnaire and share it with the Governor’s Office at [email protected].


The Department of State receives information relating to Boards & Commissions directly from the appointing authorities. We do not have the authority to enforce compliance or change the information stored in our database without official notification from the appropriate appointing authorities.

Board and Commission members may be listed with expired terms because State law often allows people to serve until replaced, even if the term of their appointment has expired. In other cases, the Department of State may not have received official notification from the appointing authority of a new appointment.
