Questions and Answers About Appointments to Boards and Commissions

1. How do I apply for a position on a board or commission?
The process starts with you. Submit an official application, along with a letter stating why you are qualified or experienced in the area of the board's activity. A personal or professional resume, while not required, is extremely helpful to the staff.

2. What happens after I submit an application to the Governors office?
When it is time for the Governor to make an appointment, an analysis is presented that includes the statutory restrictions and information on professional or personal experience either necessary or preferable to the board's function. The analysis is reviewed and applicants screened. The Governor then makes his selections. All successful candidates are informed by letter of the Governor's selection.

3. How do I know if I am eligible to be appointed?
Most of the seats on the boards and commissions are restricted by statutes.
You can research boards and commissions and the laws that govern them on the Internet at http://www.legis.state.la.us/. You may apply for any boards or commissions that interest you. Please specify your first and second choices.

4. What is "Senate Confirmation?"
Most boards and commissions require that the appointment of a person made by the Governor be submitted to the Senate for ratification of the appointment by a majority vote of the Senate.
