Arizona's Education Boards and Commissions
A Board or Commission is an independent body consisting of members who are appointed by public officials, usually the Governor. Boards with Gubernatorial appointments are created in two ways, either by statute enacted in the State Legislature, or by a Governor's Executive Order.
There are two types of boards and commissions: regulatory and advisory. Regulatory boards are those that oversee the licensing, handle complaints, and enforce disciplinary actions of individuals or industries that fall within the jurisdiction of the board's authority. For example, a complaint filed by a patient against a physician would be reviewed, investigated, and appropriately acted upon by the Arizona Medical Board. The second type of board or commission, the advisory board, develops policy and makes recommendations to public officials on how to address specific issues. For example, the Civil Rights Advisory Board investigates and holds hearings on infringements of Arizona civil rights laws and then advises the civil rights division of the Attorney General's Office.
