Boards and commissions are opportunities for Washingtonians to shape their state and government. Serving on a board or commission provides a means of influencing decisions that shape the quality of life for the residents of our state.
Washington state has more than 200 boards and commissions to which Governor Inslee appoints members. Appointees are responsible for advising the Governor, the legislature, and state agencies. In some cases, a board or commission may be responsible for setting state policy and determining how the state’s limited resources should be invested.
Governor Inslee takes great pride in appointing qualified, responsible members who reflect the diverse lifestyles of our state and who hold a strong belief in the public process.
