Board Members 

The State Board of Career Education and Workforce Development is composed of thirteen members appointed by the Governor subject to confirmation by the Senate. Act 803 of 1997 requires the appointment of one member from each congressional district and three members from the state at large. The members are to be selected from among parents, business, industry, labor, persons with disabilities, minorities, and other groups representative of the many career opportunities available in the state.

The directors of the Department of General Education and the Department of Higher Education serve as ex-officio members, and the director of the Department of Career Education serves as ex-officio secretary.
