Want to get involved in Maui County government? You don’t have to stand for election.

Candidates are sought from residents willing to provide public service on various Maui County boards, commissions, councils and committees.

Citizen volunteer responsibilities include attending meetings, receiving public testimony, and reviewing policies and standards. Panel members make important recommendations and decisions that impact Maui County.

The positions are appointed by the mayor, confirmed by the county council and have terms of two to five years.

Citizens serve as volunteers and provide an important public service for the Maui County government. Volunteers are reimbursed for eligible travel expenses.

Applications are kept on file for a minimum of two years and applicants may be considered for appointment whenever a position becomes available. Openings occur when a term expires or when vacancies occur after resignations from boards, commissions and committees.

Anyone interested in serving on a board or commission should apply online by visiting https://mauicounty.gov/167/Boards-Commissions. Paper applications are available at the county building’s second-floor lobby information desk, the ninth-floor mayor’s office, and the Maui County Service Center in Kahului. Applications are also available at Division of Motor Vehicles offices in Pukalani, Kihei, Lahaina, Lanai and Molokai, and at the County Office of Public Works in Hana.
