OLYMPIA - The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) is seeking nominations for a waterfowl policy advisory group, which will provide recommendations to the department on duck stamp habitat project proposals and other waterfowl management issues.
The volunteer group will consist of 10 to 15 members, chosen to represent a broad diversity of waterfowl conservation and recreation interests. The group will serve as an important communication link between WDFW and its constituents.
Advisers should have a broad state-wide interest in waterfowl and the ability to communicate effectively with large segments of the public. Terms will be two years. The advisory group will meet several times each year, and advisers may be asked to provide comment on written material throughout the year. Because of WDFW budget constraints, advisers are responsible for their own travel expenses.
Any group or individual may submit a nomination, and self-nominations are also accepted. Nominees do not need to be affiliated with an organized group. Nominations must include the following information:
The nominee's name, address, telephone number, and email address
The nominee's affiliations, if any
Experience, including the amount and type of experience
The name, address and telephone number of the individual or organization submitting the nomination
Nominations must be mailed no later than Feb. 15, 2003 to Don Kraege, WDFW Waterfowl Section Manager, 600 Capitol Way N., Olympia, WA., 98501-1091. More information is available by contacting Kraege at (360) 902-2522.
