This includes applications for the Board of Education. In November 2010, Hawaii voters passed a Constitutional Amendment for a Governor-appointed Board of Education (BOE), however, lawmakers must still establish a process for BOE appointments.  In the interim, the BOE is being included among the list of more than 150 boards and commissions where applications are being accepted.

Members of the public may apply themselves or recommend qualified applicants.  Applicants can be obtained by visiting the following link:  http://hawaii.gov/gov/about/boards-commissions.html.

“We want an open and fair process to identify public servants who are dedicated to advancing our vision of A New Day in Hawaii,” said Governor Abercrombie. “It takes many voices from diverse backgrounds to help build stronger communities,” he said.
