Fish and Wildlife Commission seeks candidates
for disabilities advisory committee

OLYMPIA - The Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission is seeking applicants to fill three vacancies on its advisory committee for persons with disabilities.
The seven-member committee advises the commission on issues of concern for hunters and fishers with disabilities, including special hunts, modified sporting equipment, access to public land and recreational opportunities.

Committee members are appointed by the commission, which sets policy for the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW). Qualified applicants must have a permanent disability and reside in Washington state.

The vacant positions represent WDFW Region 3 (Benton, Franklin, Kittitas, and Yakima counties); WDFW Region 4 (King, San Juan, Skagit, Snohomish, and Whatcom counties); and WDFW Region 6 (Clallam, Grays Harbor, Jefferson, Kitsap, Mason, Pacific, Pierce, and Thurston counties).

Members serve four-year terms and are required to attend advisory committee meetings, held at least twice each year. Members serve without compensation, but receive reimbursement for travel expenses.

For additional information, prospective candidates can contact the WDFW Office of Human Resources (360-902-8132) or visit the commission's website at
To receive consideration, applicants must submit a resume and a statement of interest by Nov. 1, 2016, to Sam Taylor, ADAAC Staff, Washington Department Fish and Wildlife, 600 Capitol Way North, Olympia, WA 98501-1091.
