Want to be a Commissioner?
There are a total of 23 judicial performance commissions serving the State of Colorado: one State Commission and 22 district commissions. Each commission consists of ten volunteer citizen commissioners: four attorneys and six non-attorneys.
Commissioners are appointed from one of four appointing authorities: The Chief Justice of the Colorado Supreme Court, the Governor of Colorado, the Colorado Speaker of the House, and the President of the Senate. The Chief Justice and Governor appoint one attorney and two non-attorneys, while the Speaker of the House and President of the Senate appoint one attorney and one non-attorney.
Commissioners are appointed to four year terms, and are eligible to serve up to two full terms if reappointed. Commissioners appointed to fill a vacancy will serve the remainder of the current partial term, and are subsequently eligible to serve up to two full terms if reappointed.
