HLO recruiting for public members for several boards

​Are you interested in getting involved with state service but unsure where to begin? Consider serving on one of Health Licensing Office's regulatory boards. You don't have to be a member of one of the regulated professions to serve. In fact, many of the openings are for public members. A public member is typically someone who represents a consumer's point of view (and has no conflicts of interest in the board's business). Serving on a volunteer citizen board is a great way to dip a toe into the waters of state service. Board members participate in the rulemaking process, helping enact the laws adopted by the legislature and getting a better sense of how government works on the state level.
