Inter-Agency Boards and Commissions

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 Boards and Commissions
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. Please note the Adoption Intermediary Commission is a Type 1 CDHS commission but is internal.
