Boards & Commissions

Please note: The information on this website may contain minor errors and/or omissions. The Governor's Office of Executive Appointments regularly updates the listings below to ensure the electronic file for every board, commission, task force and council is complete and accurate.

Many boards and commissions have specific membership eligibility requirements set by law, executive order, or other enacting language. Examples of these requirements include: Education, Special Knowledge/Experience, Political Affiliation or Geographic Location.

In addition, there are rules for some boards and commissions that will disqualify certain individuals from serving. One common disqualifier is current employment with the State of Illinois.
