Since my Department advertised new procedures for appointments to boards in April 2011, all appointments from that date have followed these procedures. However, given the importance of ensuring the right mix of skills and experience on every board, appointments are not necessarily confined to those who have made an expression of interest. Full details of the procedures and appointments to the Boards under the aegis of my Department are available on the Department's website at http://www.dttas.ie/StateBoardMembership.aspx.
