Complete the Interest Form

The Interest Form is a basic application that tells our office about you, your background and why you want to participate on a Governor-appointed Board or Commission. You may apply at any time, regardless of whether there is a current opening, as resignations occur throughout the year. Please type or use black ink when completing your interest form.
Please complete both sides of this form and include any additional documentation such as a resume, and statement of interest that could be beneficial in the selection process. A bio detailing your experience, key tasks, awards, and other board work is also required for appointments requiring Senate confirmation. We will not accept emails with links to your information. Please review all of your information to ensure your form is complete! Complete is the interest form (front and back), resume, statement of interest (300-400 words) why you want to serve, and a bio.
Reappointments should check the box marked "Reappointment", complete the form, include a statement of interest (why they'd like to continue), and provide a resume.
All applicants are subject to a background check and additional vetting may apply for some board positions. Notifying us about something in your past does not necessarily mean that you can’t or won’t be appointed; but it is important that you disclose this information in the beginning of the process.
Interest Forms can be returned via mail, fax, or email. If returning via email, click submit and your interest form will be attached to the outgoing message. Be sure to use your electronic signature on the document and include your requested attachment before sending.
