Workers' Compensation Qualifications Advisory Committee

The Qualifications Advisory Committee (QAC) consists of 10 individuals appointed by the governor to oversee the appointment process for the Workers' Compensation Board of Magistrates and Appellate Commission. Its duties include recommending candidates to the governor for the board and commission, evaluating the performance of individuals appointed to those positions, and reviewing caseloads and making recommendations to the governor concerning reductions or increases in the number of magistrates and appellate commissioners. The QAC members are appointed for four-year terms and serve at the pleasure of the governor.
