Commissioner Quiz

More than a contest, this is part of the "in-service education" for Commission board members.

Commission Members should email their response before 5 pm Thursday, October 31, 2019!

Send your answers to Service.Commission@maine.gov. All correct answers will be well rewarded at the meeting.

This Month's Challenge

America's Service Commissions (ASC) is unique among national trade associations because the Board of Directors must be comprised of both state service commission staff and appointed commissioners.

ASC held its annual meeting in September and elected new members to the board. 

QUESTION: How many Commission members serve on the ASC board? Of the Commissioners, who lives closest to Maine?
