About Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA) Board Members:
The DCA has 38 regulatory boards, bureaus, and programs that protect public health and safety through licensing and oversight of various professions.
For DCA’s boards, board members collectively provide oversight and direction. Board members make important decisions on agency policies and on disciplinary actions against professionals who violate state consumer protection laws. Board members approve regulations and help guide licensing, enforcement, public education and consumer protection activities.
Some board members are licensed professionals themselves, while many others are public members. The governor appoints many board members, but the Legislature makes appointments as well. Advisory committees for DCA bureaus act similarly to boards; however, bureau advisory committees serve in an advisory capacity only, advising the bureau chief and department director.
