The Vermont Commission on Women’s work is led by 16 Commissioners. Those positions are appointed: 8 by the Governor; 6 by the Legislature: 3 by the Senate Committee on Committees, 3 by the Speaker of the House; and 2 members, one each, from the Republican and Democratic parties.  Commissioner terms are four years. Appointments are staggered and seats open recurrently. The Commission is authorized by Vermont statute. The most important requirement for serving on the Commission is simply a commitment to reducing discrimination and increasing opportunities for women in Vermont. Beyond that, Commissioners bring a wide variety of perspectives and backgrounds, all of which add to our strength. Read how Commissioners and Advisors describe our work.  Our monthly meetings usually take place on the second Wednesday each month from 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. in Montpelier.  Commissioners must commit to attend most of these meetings. There is no per diem for Commissioners, but travel is reimbursed at the federal rate.   Interested in serving as a Commissioner on the Vermont Commission on Women? Contact us.
