Board Reports and How to Participate

In the State of Maine, more than 260 boards and commissions are charged with jobs and responsibilities as varied as the work of State Government itself. Members of these boards and commissions often perform the critical role in our democracy of informing the public and elected officials about important and complex issues. Many dedicated citizens provide invaluable service to Maine through their work on boards and commissions.
