The Appointments Office supports the Governor in meeting her major obligation to appoint qualified, representative and appropriate people to positions on regulatory and licensing boards and commissions, university trustees, advisory boards and task forces. We are continually looking for qualified candidates to serve on 450+ boards and commissions that oversee a large variety of industries and make decisions that affect the day-to-day lives of Alabamians.

This list will change monthly, and will include notice for positions that we are looking to fill in the next three months. This will allow you the opportunity to make nominations and be heard on these appointments. Please bear in mind that the Governor is often statutorily required to select appointees from a list of various association nominated candidates. To the extent that it is possible, the Governor’s Office makes every effort to ensure that the membership of statewide boards is inclusive and reflective of the racial, gender, geographic, urban/rural, and economic diversity of the state. We are always glad to hear from you, and appreciate your input on the appointments process. Interested candidates may submit their resume/bio to
