In California, there are over 400 boards, commissions, and positions to which the Governor appoints citizens from throughout the State.  As Appointments Secretary in the Office of the Governor, Appointments Secretary Cathryn Rivera-Hernandez is responsible for a team of employees who review applications, screen individuals, and support the appointments made by Governor Newsom.  This meeting is an excellent opportunity for Inland Action to learn how to assist the Secretary in finding qualified candidates from the Inland region who can bring their knowledge and experience into service on statewide commissions.
