(Montpelier) – Governor Peter Shumlin has reappointed Eileen Boland of Wheelock to serve on the Vermont Commission on Women (VCW).

Commissioner Boland’s interest in women’s issues began with her involvement in Vermont’s efforts to pass the national equal rights amendment in the early 80’s. She has had an active and continuing interest in the social and economic wellbeing of women and girls through her work with senior management teams in Vermont K-16 education and state government.

Commissioner Boland is currently the human resources director for St. Johnsbury Academy. She was Vermont’s Commissioner of Human Resources (formerly Personnel) from 1997-2000 where she was a member of the Governor’s Affirmative Action Council. Numerous community and civic involvements include serving as a trustee for the St. Johnsbury Athenaeum and as a Justice of the Peace and member of the Board of Civil Authority for her hometown of Wheelock. She holds a B.F.A. in photo illustration from the Rochester Institute of Technology and an M.A. in Education Administration and Supervision from Johnson State College.


The Vermont Commission on Women (VCW) is a non-partisan state agency working to advance rights and opportunities for women and girls. Sixteen volunteer commissioners and representatives from organizations concerned with women’s issues guide VCW’s public education, coalition building, and advocacy efforts. VCW offers many services to the public, including a toll-free information and referral service at 800-881-1561 and many publications, including the handbook The Legal Rights of Women in Vermont.
