The Judicial Council has extended the deadline to apply for two upcoming vacancies on the Hawai‘i State Ethics Commission. The new application deadline is March 7, 2018.

Members of the commission serve on a voluntary basis. Applicants from all islands may apply. Travel expenses incurred by Neighbor Island commissioners to attend meetings on O‘ahu will be reimbursed.

Applicants must be U.S. citizens, residents of the State of Hawai‘i, and may not hold any other public office. The Hawai‘i State Constitution prohibits members of the Ethics Commission from taking an active part in political management or political campaigns.

The Ethics Commission addresses ethical issues involving legislators, registered lobbyists, and state employees (with the exception of judges, who are governed by the Commission on Judicial Conduct). The five commission members are responsible for investigating complaints, providing advisory opinions, and enforcing decisions issued by the Commission.

The governor will select the commissioners from two nominees for each vacancy submitted by the Judicial Council. The term of service for these commissioners will run from July 1, 2018, through June 30, 2022.
