Organization and Membership

Membership in the Commission is governed by North Carolina General Statute § 143B-148. By statute, there are 32 members of the Commission. Each member represents a specific appointment category identified in the statute and a congressional district of our state. The Governor appoints 24 members of the Commission while the General Assembly appoints the remaining eight. Of the appointees from the General Assembly, four appointments are made on the recommendation of the Speaker of the House and four on the recommendation of the President Pro Tempore of the Senate. The Governor appoints the Chair of the Commission. Commission members serve until their own terms expire and until those who will replace them have been appointed and have completed all requirements of the State Ethics Commission. The Commission roster reflects the current membership of the Commission as well as the appointing body, the appointment category, and, where known, the congressional district of each appointee.

Commission Roster

The Commission established the Rules Committee as well as the Advisory Committee to carry out its two primary functions: rulemaking and serving in an advisory capacity to the Secretary of the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services.
