HONOLULU – The Department of Commerce & Consumer Affairs (DCCA) is looking for qualified and dedicated volunteers to fill current and upcoming vacancies on boards, commissions and committees across the state.

The governor makes appointments and nominations to more than 185 boards and commissions established by the State of Hawai‘i Constitution, state statutes and executive orders. Boards and commissions provide Hawaii’s citizens with an opportunity to have a voice in their government and to influence decisions that shape the quality of life for Hawaii’s residents.

Existing and anticipated vacancies must be filled on a wide range of DCCA boards and commissions, including the Hawaii Medical Board; Board of Nursing; Board of Veterinary Medicine; Real Estate Commission; Board of Electricians and Plumbers; and Board of Professional Engineers, Architects, Surveyors and Landscape Architects. The DCCA, through its Professional and Vocational Licensing Division, is responsible for a total of 25 professional boards and commissions including the following, which may have existing or anticipated vacancies.

  • Board of Public Accountancy
  • Board of Acupuncture
  • Board of Barbering and Cosmetology

If you are interested in becoming a member of a board, commission or committee and helping to continue Hawaii’s momentum toward a strong and engaged community, please apply for an appointment through the governor’s office. Volunteers may serve on one state board, commission or committee at a time, and will require nomination by the governor and approval by the senate. Board member composition is statutorily mandated to include licensee members and public members who are private citizens not connected with the licensed industry.
