BOARD APPOINTEES AND VACANCIES
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 November 2012 appear. Vacancies
scheduled to appear from January 1, 2013, through March 31, 2013, 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 December 1, 2012.
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.
