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 physical disability and reside in Washington state.

The vacant positions represent WDFW Region 2 (Adams, Chelan, Douglas, Grant, and Okanogan counties); WDFW Region 5 (Clark, Cowlitz, Klickitat, Lewis, Skamania, and Wahkiakum counties); and "at large" statewide.

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 an application form or additional information, prospective candidates can contact Dolores Noyes at the Washington Department Fish and Wildlife (360-902-2349) or see the WDFW website at: http://wdfw.wa.gov/accessibility/

To receive consideration, applications must be submitted by March 10, 2013 to Dolores Noyes, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, 600 Capitol Way N., Olympia, WA 98501-1091.
