Calls for Board Nominations

Individuals dedicated to public protection, including licensed professionals and members of the public, are needed from throughout New York State to serve on the Professional State boards/committees. Board members assist the Board of Regents and the State Education Department to help ensure the highest quality of professional preparation and practice.

Professional board members must be New York State-licensed and currently registered professionals who are residents of the State. Public members are required to be or have been consumers of the service of the board.
