DENVER – Gov. John Hickenlooper announced the appointments Friday of two local residents to state advisory boards.

Glenwood Springs attorney Sherry A. Caloia was named to the State Board of Social Work Examiners for a term expiring June 30, 2014. The board licenses social workers in Colorado and conducts hearings concerning complaints against licensed social workers.

The governor named state Rep. Roger Wilson, D-Glenwood Springs, to the Scenic and Historic Byways Commission. He will serve as a representative from the Colorado General Assembly for a term expiring Jan. 1, 2013.

The Byways Commission works with state agencies, the U.S. Forest Service, the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, and local byways organizations to help develop byways management plans, including interpretation, promotion and protection of distinctive byways characteristics. The board also helps coordinate the budgeting process and allocation of federal, state and private funds for byway improvements.
