Prev Next




Section 2-15-108, MCA, passed by the 1991 Legislature, directed that all appointing authorities of all appointive boards, commissions, committees, and councils of state government take positive action to attain gender balance and proportional representation of minority residents to the greatest extent possible.


One directive of 2-15-108, MCA, is that the Secretary of State publish monthly in the Montana Administrative Register a list of appointees and upcoming or current vacancies on those boards and councils.


In this issue, appointments effective in June 2011 appear. Vacancies scheduled to appear from August 1, 2011, through October 31, 2011, are listed, as are current vacancies due to resignations or other reasons. Individuals interested in serving on a board should refer to the bill that created the board for details about the number of members to be appointed and necessary qualifications.


Each month, the previous month's appointees are printed, and current and upcoming vacancies for the next three months are published.




Membership on boards and commissions changes constantly. The following lists are current as of July 1, 2011.


For the most up-to-date information of the status of membership, or for more detailed information on the qualifications and requirements to serve on a board, contact the appointing authority.
