Alaska Public Offices Commission (APOC) is looking for someone to fill a vacant seat on the agency. As the state’s elections regulatory board, APOC plays a critical role in administering state laws requiring disclosure of the financial activities of lobbyists, employers of lobbyists, public officials, and candidates, groups and political parties participating in elections.

Currently, the commission is seeking a person who can serve as a public member for a five-year term that begins this coming March. Whoever is selected will be subject to appointment by Gov. Mike Dunleavy with confirmation by the legislature.

Members are expected to attend one or two-day meetings at least three times a year in Anchorage and are also expected to participate in other teleconference/videoconference meetings as necessary.  Members receive a $50 honorarium for each day of the meeting, reimbursement for travel expenses, and per diem.  Members may not participate in any political activity while serving on the Commission and must file a Public Official Financial Disclosure Statement required for state boards and commissions.


To apply, send a resume and written statement of interest to Rick Stillie, Chair, Alaska Public Offices Commission, 2221 E. Northern Lights Blvd., Rm. 128, Anchorage, AK 99508.  For more information about the Commission, contact Heather Hebdon, Executive Director, at:  Applications will be accepted through February 9, 2024.  In-person interviews are expected to take place during the Commission’s February 2024 meeting in Anchorage.
