Serving on a government board, committee or statutory authority is a rewarding and productive way to get involved with government and help shape Queensland.
Around 320 government bodies have a role to play in Queensland. They provide leadership and have responsibility for a wide variety of government activities—from advisory boards providing policy advice on discrete areas of government policy, to professional registration boards, or governing boards overseeing multi-million dollar government trading enterprises.
You can join the Register of Nominees and be considered for roles within government bodies. It’s a confidential listing and enables government agencies to search for new members when a position on a board or committee becomes available.
All Queenslanders can register to be considered for a position. We’re committed to ensuring an equitable representation of women on boards and committees, and applications are also encouraged from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, people with expertise in multiculturalism, young people and people with disabilities.
Queensland Government bodies are in most cases established by or under an Act of Parliament. They are managed by a number of people who are appointed either by a Minister or by the Governor in Council upon the recommendation of Cabinet and together make up a government board, committee or other body. Members of bodies are responsible to a Minister for the general direction, control and operations of the board.
