Call for Committee Members

The Commission is calling on licensees to put their names forward to serve one-year terms on the following committees: Licensing, Complaints Review, Discipline, Education and Commercial. Licensees are welcome to apply to more than one committee.

There are different responsibilities and time investments for each committee. For example, members of the Licensing Committee and Complaints Review Committee are required to attend a minimum of four annual meetings and review documents prior to each meeting. Alternatively, members of the Discipline Committee may be called upon to serve on a hearing panel, which may result in a one-to-three day hearing, and additional time spent writing the hearing panel decision. For more information about the Commission's committees, visit our website.
