The State Board has 13 members who are appointed by the governor with the advice and consent of the New Jersey State Senate. They serve six-year terms and are not paid. No two members may be appointed from the same county.
By law, at least three members of the State Board must be women. Meeting that minimum requirement, ten board members are men and three are women.
The current board is composed of seven members appointed by Gov. Chris Christie, three by Gov. Jon Corzine, one by Gov. Richard Codey, one by Gov. Jim McGreevey, and one by Gov. Jim Florio.
