  • 2 licensees, appointed by the Governor, who:
    • Have been collection agency owners or executive employees for at least 5 years
    • Are actively engaged in the collection agency business throughout their term
  • 2 members of the general public, appointed by the Governor, who:
    • Don't have collection agency licenses
    • Don't work for a licensed collection agency

The board meets at least twice a year. The board and administrative staff decide meeting dates, times, and locations.
