Office of Executive Appointments

The office of citizen is the highest office in the land. One of the best ways to participate in our democracy is by serving on a state board or commission. These groups oversee and advise Illinois' elected officials, state agencies and organizations on a wide range of issues that affect the public welfare.

These boards and commissions also play a vital role in promoting efficient, effective, and honest government.

For many, serving on a board or commission is one of the most rewarding experiences of their lives.
