Cosmetology Advisory Board has opening for public position

The Department of Licensing is looking for a public member to join our Cosmetology, Barber, Manicuring and Esthetician Advisory Board.

What does the advisory board do?
The advisory board makes recommendations to the Department on the laws and rules governing cosmetology, barbering, manicuring, estheticians and industry schools.  We need a public member to give us opinions and information from the consumer’s point of view.

We are looking for a consumer who is not affiliated with the cosmetology industry.  This means you cannot be any of the following:

  • A licensee
  • A student
  • An instructor
  • A shop owner
  • A school owner

Is this a paid position?
Yes, board members are paid up to $50 per day for board meetings.  We do not use general funds for our program, so travel and lodging expenses are reimbursed at state rates.

What kind of commitment is this?

  • Board members are appointed for a period of three years 
  • Regular meetings are scheduled on a quarterly basis – usually on a Monday
  • Other meetings may be scheduled as needed
