WDFW seeks nominations for
steelhead/cutthroat advisory group

OLYMPIA The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) is seeking nominations through Nov. 15 for membership on the Steelhead/Cutthroat Policy Advisory Group.

Up to 20 qualified individuals will be chosen to serve on the advisory group for 2013 and 2014. Those selected will provide guidance to WDFW on statewide issues related to management of steelhead and cutthroat. They also serve as an important communication link between WDFW and its constituents.

Advisors should have a broad interest in steelhead and/or cutthroat management and the ability to communicate effectively with large segments of the public.

The advisory group meets approximately four times each year, and advisors are asked to comment on written material throughout the year. Advisors serve for a term of two years and can be reappointed.

Appointments become effective January 2013. Current members are encouraged to reapply. Advisors do not receive direct compensation for their work.

Any group or individual can 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 and telephone number.

  • The nominee's affiliations, if any.

  • The name, address and telephone number of any organization submitting a nomination.

  • Experience, including the type of experience, and any species or areas of interest, as well as references.

Nominations must be received by Nov. 15. Nominations may be submitted to Bob Leland, WDFW steelhead program manager, by mail: 600 Capitol Way N., Olympia, WA, 98501; or email at robert.leland@dfw.wa.gov. More information is available by contacting Leland, at (360) 902-2817.
