Citizen Advisory Committee Members Needed for FWP in NW Montana
By Toby Trigger


Would you like to learn about the real issues facing Montana and have a voice on a citizen committee?

If you do the opportunity to participate as a Citizen Advisory Committee in Region 1 is available and the CAC is looking for new members.

According to a news release by the Montana FWP (KALISPELL, Mont.) Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks is seeking up to 5 volunteer applicants to serve terms of 2-3 years on the Citizen’s Advisory Committee (CAC) for FWP that was established in 1996. The primary function of the CAC is to increase FWP’s awareness of emerging issues throughout the region by sharing the perspectives of the increasingly diverse constituencies.

We are seeking people with multi-faceted enthusiasm for the outdoors who we will rely on for advice and perspective regarding a wide range of sportsman, fisheries, wildlife, parks, enforcement, recreational and educational issues.

We try to geographically balance membership throughout our region encompassing northwest Montana so that we broaden the base of issues and perspectives. If selected as an advisor, we ask that you relay to FWP not only your unique perspective on current issues, but also the concerns, interests, and public opinion that you hear and discuss with others from your community, natural resource organizations, or social circle.

This Citizen’s Advisory Committee meets approximately 5-6 times per year between the timeframe of late September to early June. Meetings are typically scheduled for Wednesday evenings in the Kalispell area. If selected as a committee member, your attendance at meetings is expected.

To apply, download the attached cover letter and application and return it electronically to Martha Abbrescia at mabbrescia@mt.gov . Or, request the application be emailed to you by calling 752-5501.

If you would like your application considered, it must be received no later than AUGUST 31, 2017
