Boards and Commissions created during the 2021 Legislative Session are still in the process of being added to our system.  If you are interested in applying to one of these boards, please check back on October 8th.

​Due to the high volume of in​quiries, there may be a delay in hearing back from a member of our team.​​​​

Thank you,
Executive Appointments


Applicants who are already board members applying for reappointment and/or current state workers, apply here: Log in with your OR number and search for the board or​ commission​ you would like to apply to. Use the "Apply" button to submit your application.

New applicants should apply here: Search for the board or commission you would like to apply to and use the "Apply" button to submit your application.

You will be instructed to create a Workday profile using an email and password.

The Electronic Application will capture the same material as the previously used Interest Form. It 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 will need to include your resume, a short personal bio, and answers to supplemental questions. In addition, 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. Please ensure your fiscal responsibilities are in order when applying. Non-compliant issues may delay or jeopardize your potential appointment.

If you are unable to complete the form electronically, please reach out to the Executive Appointments Office at for assistance.

You may apply at any time, regardless of whether there is a current opening, as resignations occur throughout the year. Once you submit your Electronic Application, it will be remain on file with our office until the end of December 2022. If you are being actively considered for an appointment, you will hear from either the Governor’s Office or the Board Administrator directly.

HB 2992

Oregon law allows state Board and Commission members to receive statutory per diem compensation and reimbursement of certain expenses for each day or portion thereof which they spend time performing Board or Commission​ duties. House Bill 2992, which was passed during the 2021 Legislative session, is intended to reduce systemic barriers to participation in state Boards and Commissions.
