Geographic Diversity: Applications are encouraged from all states, but priority in selection will be given to applicants from states that are not currently represented on the ASC Board. Targets by geographic cluster are as follows:

  • Seeking one commission staff member/commissioner from the North Central Cluster (IA, IL, IN, MI, MN, ND, NE, OH, WI)
