OLYMPIA – The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) is seeking nominations through Sept. 15 for membership on its enforcement advisory group.
Up to 20 qualified individuals will be chosen to serve on the advisory group, which will provide recommendations to WDFW on staffing, deployment, workload, outreach and education, collaborative projects, and other enforcement issues.
“Advisers are an important link between WDFW and communities throughout the state,” said Chief Bruce Bjork, who heads WDFW’s enforcement division. “We’re interested in finding people who represent a broad range of conservation and recreational interests, understand fish and wildlife enforcement and have an ability to communicate with the public.”
Members of the advisory group are expected to meet several times a year, and may be asked to comment on written materials throughout their two-year term. Those selected are responsible for their own travel expenses.
Any group or individual may submit a nomination, and self-nominations are accepted. Nominees do not have to be affiliated with an organized group.
Nominations must be received by Sept. 15, and must include the nominee’s name, address, telephone number, email address, affiliations, and experience with fish and wildlife conservation or other law enforcement. Up to three references may also be included. The name, address and telephone number of the individual or organization submitting the nomination must be included.
Nominations can be submitted to Sean Carrell, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, 600 Capitol Way N., Olympia, WA, 98501. For more information, contact Sean Carrell at (360) 902-2926.
