The database that resides on this page contains the most currently available information about the status of openings on state boards and commissions. Some seats are open while others have seated members whose terms have expired. All seats in both the open and expired categories are presumed to be open for application.
Most positions on state boards and commissions are appointed by the governor directly. Some are appointed by the governor but require confirmation by a specific committee of the SC Senate. Where confirmation is required, the committee that confirms is listed. For example, members of the SC Arts Commission are appointed by the governor from specific districts but must be confirmed by the Senate Education Committee.
