Inter-agency boards and commissions are created by the Colorado General Assembly, the Governor, and/or federal statutes. Members are usually appointed by the Governor and/or General Assembly Leadership. Some boards and commissions require members to be confirmed by the Colorado Senate. There are two types of boards and commissions: type 1 and type 2; see details below. More information about all Governor-appointed boards can be found on the Governor's Boards and Commissions website.
The list of inter-agency boards and commissions, with current openings, is below.

Type 1 inter-agency boards and commissions are administered under the direction and supervision of CDHS and exercise statutory powers, duties, and functions, including rulemaking, independently of the CDHS Executive Director.
