Texas Department of Licensing & Regulation Looking for Volunteer Advisory Board Members


AUSTIN – The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation needs volunteers to serve on 16 advisory boards and committees to provide technical knowledge and industry expertise to the agency, which regulates 37 professions in Texas.

“TDLR needs Texans who care about their communities to participate on our advisory boards and committees,” said TDLR Executive Director Mike Arismendez Jr. “Thanks to a change in state law, we’re able to hold most of our advisory board meetings online, so members no longer have to travel to Austin to meet. We hope that more people will want to get involved.”

Many of the vacancies that TDLR aims to fill are for public members who do not have a connection to the industry of their appointed board and will represent Texas consumers. Most terms on the boards and committees last for six years, although some terms may be shorter because a seat has been vacated by a member who was unable to complete their term.

Advisory board members are appointed by the chair of the Texas Commission on Licensing and Regulation. There is no financial compensation for membership. 

The following boards and councils currently have vacancies:
