Queensland Register of Nominees to Government Bodies

Serving on a government board, committee or statutory authority is a rewarding and productive way to get involved with government and help shape Queensland.

Who can join?

All Queenslanders are eligible to join the register to be considered for a range of government boards and committees, however joining the register does not guarantee appointment.

To ensure an equitable representation, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, women, people with expertise in multiculturalism, young people and people with disabilities are all encouraged to join the register.

How members are appointed

Once you have registered, you will receive an email acknowledging we have received your registration details. Another email will also be sent to confirm you have been placed on the Register of Nominees.

When a government-nominated position on a board or committee becomes vacant, your details are matched to the criteria for the proposed appointment. Agencies will conduct a search of the register and be provided with the names of people who have the skills to suit the position.

If your skills and experience match the desired expertise, the government agency responsible for the vacancy will contact you to confirm your interest in the position and further outline any other requirements of the role. You do not have to accept a particular appointment and your details will remain on the register until you advise otherwise or do not respond to requests to update your information.

Who manages the register?

The Department of the Premier and Cabinet has overall responsibility for the administration of the register.

About boards and committees

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.

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.
