Governor Seeking Applicants to Boards and Commissions

Honolulu –  Governor Neil Abercrombie today announced that applications are being accepted for service on the numerous boards and commissions – including the Board of Education – via his website, http://hawaii.gov/gov.

The Office of the Governor oversees more than 150 boards and commissions established by the state constitution, statutes, or executive orders.  Members of the public may apply themselves or recommend qualified applicants.

“We want an open and fair process to identify public servants who are dedicated to advancing our vision of A New Day in Hawaii,” Governor Abercrombie said. “We cannot make positive change in Hawaii alone.  It takes many voices from diverse backgrounds to help build stronger communities.”

In November 2010, Hawaii voters passed a Constitutional Amendment for a Governor-appointed Board of Education (BOE).  This session, which begins today, lawmakers will be working on legislation to determine the BOE appointment process.  In preparation, the Abercrombie Administration is including the BOE among the other boards and commissions.

Information about all the boards and commissions, and application instructions are posted athttp://hawaii.gov/gov/about/boards-commissions.html.
