Volunteers to serve on advisory boards, committees
Austin—The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation seeks volunteers to serve on 17 advisory boards and committees to provide technical knowledge and industry expertise to the agency, which regulates 38 occupations in Texas. The agency also seeks public members who have no attachment to the industry being regulated.
“TDLR needs Texans who care about their communities to participate on our advisory boards and committees,” Mike Arismendez Jr, TDLR executive director, said. “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 seeks to fill are for public members who will represent Texas consumers and do not have a connection to the industry of their appointed board. 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 chairman of the Texas Commission on Licensing and Regulation. There is no financial compensation for membership.

Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Contractors Advisory Board, 6-year terms
