Interested Oregonians can apply for over 130 open positions on 12 new boards and commissions.

Gov. Tina Kotek announced Aug. 16 that the state is accepting applications for positions on the state boards and commissions that were created in the 2023 legislative session, and called upon Oregonians to consider stepping up to serve.

“Today I’m echoing the call to action I made when I was sworn in, and invite all Oregonians to help build the Oregon you want to live in. The people who serve on our state’s boards and commissions develop policies that guide a broad range of issues that impact Oregonians’ lives every day,” Gov. Kotek said. “True progress will require each and every one of us to be engaged – and I hope Oregonians with an interest in these issues will consider stepping up to serve.”

New boards and commissions seeking appointments include:

More information on Oregon’s board and commissions and resources for interested applicants can be found here. Application deadlines vary by board or commission.

The Governor makes appointments to over 265 Boards and Commissions representing a broad range of areas and issues. This includes most major state agencies and departments headed by policy-making boards. There are additional application opportunities within existing boards and commissions.

The Governor is committed to ensuring that all Boards and Commissions represent the growing age, racial, gender and geographic diversity of the state. This is an amazing opportunity to pool our collective viewpoints, visions, and hopes for Oregon — and all residents are welcome and encouraged to serve.

Note: You must be an Oregon resident and taxpayer to participate unless otherwise noted.
