OFFICE OF APPOINTMENTS AND EXECUTIVE NOMINATIONS    

 

The Office of Appointments and Executive Nominations for the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DHMH) is responsible for recruiting and processing nominees for appointment to regulatory boards, task forces, commissions and advisory councils. The recruitment process is done pursuant to the specifications of State Statute for Health Occupations and Health General of the Annotated Code of Maryland or by Executive Order. Additionally, new task forces, committees or advisory councils are created through legislation each year which require a particular recruitment process and are usually required to be fully appointed and staffed by May, June, July or October of that same year.   

This office monitors over 1100 active appointments, tracks the length of terms of each individual and recruits for vacancies created by resignations and fulfillment of term requirement.  

Each regulatory board, task force, committee and advisory council has different licensure requirements and term eligibility, depending on statute or Executive Order.  While recruiting racial, geographical and gender diversity must be maintained.  

The Office of Appointments and Executive Nomination works with the Governor’s Appointments Office, executive directors of the regulatory boards, state departments and agencies, associations, the State Ethics Commission and the Office of the Attorney General for the Department.
