Thank you for your interest in serving as an appointee on one of the Commonwealth of Kentucky's Advisory Boards and Commissions (ABC). The governor and Cabinet secretary make appointments to ABCs. Prospective appointees must provide specified information and possess the skills and knowledge to perform the duties of the boards, commissions, councils or committees to which they are appointed. Some of these requirements may be extensive.

The Cabinet for Health and Family Services administers a variety of boards, commission, councils and advisory committees in compliance with state statute. Positions in each of these administrative bodies vary by title and category as do sources of appointment recommendations. Some positions are recommended by a CHFS agency through lists compiled by various organizations and associations named in statute. Some positions are appointed by the secretary of CHFS, while others are appointed by the governor.

Information regarding political affiliation, race, gender and geographic location is required to satisfy the specific membership requirements established by the Kentucky General Assembly to ensure equitable and balanced bodies.
