Minnesota Environmental Quality Board

The EQB's mission is to enhance Minnesota's environmental quality for current and future generations by leading interagency work to advance meaningful public engagement and facilitate informed decision-making on critical environmental issues.

No experience is required to apply for a Public Board Member position. Minnesota residents in the specified congressional district with an interest in environmental issues and a commitment to the EQB’s mission are encouraged to apply.

Minnesota Statute requires that half of the Public Members “have knowledge of and be conversant in environmental review or permitting.” This may include prior experience as a consultant, staff, project proposer, public advocate, or other relevant experience. As a result, experience with environmental review is preferred, but is only required when the open seat must help EQB achieve the 50% standard.

The Minnesota Environmental Quality Board (EQB) is a forum for leadership and coordination across Minnesota state agencies on complex, priority environmental issues. As a public-facing board, the EQB strives to engage Minnesotans and provide greater access to conversations regarding the future of our environment.

The Board has a responsibility to address issues affecting our water, land, air, energy, and climate. In addition the EQB functions as the coordinating body for Minnesota's Environmental Review Program.
