Citizen Members

Council Citizen Members are appointed by the Governor of the State of Indiana. Staff support the Council in soliciting recommendations, recruitment, and identification of eligible potential new members for consideration. After reviewing applications, the Council Leadership Committee interviews eligible applicants to fill open vacancies, selects applicants to be considered by the full Council, and the full Council votes through a consensus process to recommend the potential new members to the Governor for consideration for appointment. The Council and its staff do not have final appointment authority, and sometimes recommended candidates are not appointed.
