Cabinet and Executive Office
Governor Whitmer is committed to a Cabinet and Executive Office that is representative of Michigan. That commitment applies as well to the Governor’s appointments to various boards and commissions that serve the state. The Appointments Division is responsible for seeking qualified candidates to fulfill these responsibilities. If you are interested in serving on a board or commission, please complete the electronic application. As we fill upcoming vacancies we will give full consideration to all applicants.
Michigan's constitution requires Governor Whitmer to fill vacancies in judicial office by appointment. If you meet the legal qualifications to serve as a judge and are interested in an appointment to a judicial office, please follow the link below to obtain a judicial appointment questionnaire. You must submit a complete packet, including the judicial appointment questionnaire and other required attachments by email to the Governor's Office of Legal Counsel by the deadline displayed in the News & Events section of the State Bar of Michigan's website to be considered. Candidates who merit consideration will be interviewed and rated by the State Bar's Judicial Qualifications Committee, which will conduct a thorough background check of the applicant's fitness to serve as a judge. Certain candidates may then be selected for further consideration by the Governor's Office before the Governor makes an appointment.
