Environmental Health Registration board seeks new members

Thursday, March 23, 2017

Oregon's Environmental Health Registration Board is recruiting for two members: an environmental health specialist with at least four years of experience in environmental sanitation and one representative of the food/alcohol beverage retail industry.

The Environmental Health Registration Board oversees the practices of environmental health specialists and waste water specialists and meets roughly twice a year at the Health Licensing Office in Salem. The environmental health specialist on the board represents the perspective of the regulated profession, while the food/beverage industry brings the perspective of a group who works with environmental health specialists in inspections.

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.

The HLO encourages candidates to apply but does not administer the appointment process.

Appointment to a board of an HLO-regulated profession is made by the Governor's Office of Executive Appointments, as are appointments for approximately 200 other state boards.

The office continuously recruits qualified applicants, who undergo a thorough background and reference check before being recommended for appointment.

To apply, complete an application/interest form from the Governor's Office of Executive Appointments and submit it to:

Executive Appointments, Office of the Governor
900 Court St. NE Room 160, Salem, OR 97301-4047
Phone: (503) 378-3123 // Executive Appointments Private Fax (503) 373-0840

For more information

Please contact the Governor's Office of Executive Appointments if you have questions about the appointment process or the status of your application.​​
