Members of the Commission

Established by statute in 1970, the Kentuc​​ky Commission on Women comprises the Lieutenant Governor and not more than 24 members and a chairperson, who are appointed by the Governor. Members serve four-year terms.

In appointing the Commission the Governor attempts to ensure, insofar as it may be practicable, and with due regard to the several geographic regions and socioeconomic gro​​ups, that the board is broadly representative of the women of the commonwealth.
