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.

About the board

The Oregon Board of Electrologists and Body Art Practitioners oversees the practices of tattoo artists, electrologists and body piercers, including specialty piercers and earlobe-only piercers.

The Board of Body Art Practitioners consists of seven members appointed by the governor:

  • Two licensed to perform body piercing
  • Two licensed to perform tattooing
  • One licensed to perform electrolysis
  • One public member
  • One health care provider member licensed under ORS Chapter 677, 678 or 685

The term of office of each member of the board is four years, but a member serves at the pleasure of the governor. Vacancies are filled by the governor by appointment for the unexpired term. A member serves until the appointment and qualification of a successor.
