Welcome to Hawaii State Boards and Commissions!

The Governor appoints and nominates to more than 170 boards and commissions established by the State of Hawaii Constitution, state statutes and executive orders. Boards and commissions provide an opportunity for citizens to have a voice in their government and provide a means of influencing decisions that shape the quality of life for the residents of Hawaii. The Office of the Governor is looking for individuals who are dedicated to continuing the State of Hawaii’s momentum toward a strong and sustainable future, and are committed to investing in the people of Hawaii and our statewide community.
