Mayoral Appointments That Require Council Confirmation

Currently, roughly half of the District’s boards and commissions were established by D.C. Law and the statutory authority for these 76 District boards and commissions provides that the Mayor’s nominations must be confirmed by the Council of the District of Columbia. Once the Council confirms a nomination, the Mayor can issue a Mayor’s Order and swear-in the nominee.

Most boards and commissions have defined schedules for the Council action spelled out in D.C. Official Code § 1-523.01 (Mayoral Nominees) or in the respective statues.

The Mayor currently has nominations pending in the Council of the District of Columbia. To view a complete list, please view the spreadsheet below.

If you would like to track the progress of these nominations, please use the Legislative Information Management System (LIMS) for Council Period 20 at and search by typing in the nominee’s name or by typing in the name of the board or commission.
