Are you interested in becoming a Board, Council or Commission Member?

The Department of Business and Professional Regulation supports the Governor in meeting his obligation to appoint qualified, representative and appropriate people to the important leadership roles within the department’s Professional Boards, Council and Commissions. Members are appointed by the Governor, subject to confirmation by the Senate.

If you are interested in serving on a Board, Council or Commission, please contact the Governor’s Appointment’s Office for more information and to complete the “Questionnaire for Gubernatorial Appointments” application form. Please note that some boards have very specific licensing requirements or other conditions for membership. When completing the “Questionnaire for Gubernatorial Appointments” it is helpful for you to indicate the board position in which you are interested, along with your specific qualifications for that position.

For a list of appointment opportunities within the Department of Business and Professional Regulation’s Professional Boards, Council and Commissions – including information regarding membership requirements, estimated time and travel commitments and a list of current members – please select the specific profession from the list provided below.  Because there are many factors related to the application, selection and appointment process, the available position information indicated below may change without notice.  Please contact the Governor’s Appointment’s Office for specific up-to-date information regarding appointment opportunities.

Unless otherwise indicated, Florida law prohibits board members from holding more than one public office and provides that no officer, director, or administrator of a Florida state, county, or regional professional association, may serve on a board that governs that profession.
