Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks (FWP) is seeking applicants to fill volunteer positions on the west-central Montana Citizen Advisory Committee (CAC).
The CAC is a general advisory committee that provides input and feedback to FWP on diverse issues—from wildlife and fisheries management to access, state parks, outdoor recreation and law enforcement. The committee is designed to have a membership that represents a variety of west-central Montana communities and natural resource interests.
To apply, download an application online at fwp.mt.gov/regions/r2/cac/, or contact FWP at 406-542-5500. Completed applications must be received by Friday, July 1, 2016.
Applicants must live in FWP Region 2, which includes the counties of Deer Lodge, Ravalli, Granite, Mineral, Missoula, Powell and the southwestern portion of Lewis & Clark. FWP welcomes applications from hunters, anglers, trappers, boaters, outfitters and guides, other outdoor recreationists and anyone with an interest in natural resource issues.
The function of the CAC is to:
· Provide a forum for ongoing, two-way communication;
· Help FWP identify emerging issues;
· Provide advice and perspective on important resource and management issues;
· Assist FWP with crafting local solutions on regional and statewide issues.
The panel of volunteers typically has four evening meetings per year in Missoula. Members serve four year terms and can reapply when their terms expire. Meals and travel expenses are provided.
