Seeking Public Board Members!

The Division of Professions and Occupations (DPO) is seeking public board members to aid in its consumer-protection mission. DPO is the largest Division within the Department of Regulatory Agencies and oversees 345,000 licensees within more than 50 professions, occupations, and entities in Colorado.

Public board service is highly rewarding and has a strong impact on the well-being of Colorado citizens, many of whom are consumers of the professions, occupations and businesses over which DPO has regulatory authority. If you are someone who enjoys contributing to your community, and would like to serve as a public board member, please apply online on the Governor's website.
