Applications are now being accepted to fill a single open seat on the Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks’ Region 6 Citizens Advisory Council.
Each of FWP’s seven administrative regions has a volunteer CAC to serve in an advisory capacity to help guide policies and programs. The region 6 CAC currently has 13 seats, but one member recently moved out of the area. Only residents within the physical boundaries of region 6 can serve on the panel.
Candidates from across the region are encouraged to apply to serve the nearly three years remaining in the open term. Applicants will be asked to provide an overview of their interests and involvement in natural resource management and conservation issues and to write a few sentences on why they are interested in serving on the panel.
The region 6 CAC meets three times a year in the Glasgow area. Meals and related travel expenses are provided, and members can serve for up to two consecutive, three-year terms.
Completed applications must be received by Nov. 30 and successful applicants should be prepared to attend their first council meeting on Jan. 8.
