Apply to the Panelist Pool

The Review Panel process is the cornerstone of the Arts Commission's programs, and is key in our efforts to support the arts community with fairness and transparency. The agency is regularly in need of panelists to review, score, and/or rank applications. Review Panel members are responsible for understanding their role, consistently contributing to the discussion at hand, and scoring applications in a manner that will lead to the betterment of the community as a whole. Their primary responsibility is to assist the staff and commissioners in carrying out their obligations to serve the Sacramento public. As a panelist, you must:

  • Be a California resident
  • Be available for the entire panel meeting (1/2 - 3 days)
  • Have the ability and willingness to view up to 60 applications and work samples online before the panel meeting
  • Score applications based solely on review criteria without bias

If you are interested in serving on a Review Panel, please complete the below form (questions marked with an asterisk are required). You name will be added to a pool of potential panelists, and staff will contact you if and when your background would be a good fit for an upcoming Review Panel. Your information will be kept for one year before you need to re-apply. For questions, please email .
