The Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission holds regular in-person meetings and teleconference calls in locations around the state. These meetings are typically open to the public, and many are streamed live on video. All meetings are recorded and the audio is available after the meeting.
Additional meetings and conference calls may be scheduled as-needed. Agendas and meeting materials are posted prior to the meetings. The links for these materials are on the agenda.
Testifying at Fish and Wildlife Commission meetings
The Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission encourages public participation by providing comments in person, online, or by submitting written comments electronically. At each scheduled public meeting, the Commission provides time on the agenda for members of the public to provide oral comments. Note: Items may be taken out of order. Times listed are estimates only.
If you want to provide testimony, please complete a "Public Testimony" form (available at the meeting registration table) PRIOR to the start of discussion of that agenda item. Submit your completed form to the Commission representative at the registration table prior to discussion of that agenda item. When registering to testify please provide your first and last name; what topic you would like to speak to; a valid email address, and a phone number.
The public can provide comment using Zoom by phone or electronic device. If you wish to comment, please use the Raise Hand function (“Raise Hand” for computer/tablet/smartphone users, *9 on your phone keypad for telephone-only users). At the appropriate time to speak, you will be recognized by your partial phone number or your Zoom username and staff will unmute your connection. You will be asked to state your name for record, just as if you were attending the meeting in person.
- Arrive early to hear the pertinent presentation and review information.
- Speakers will have 3 minutes to speak.
- Testimony time cannot be given to another speaker.
- Testimony is NOT an interactive session; Commissioners are considering public comments not responding or having a dialogue.
- Limit your comments to new issues. If you agree with points made by previous speakers, simply acknowledge that and please move on to new information.
Written comments, and attachments, on specific agenda items will be accepted and made available to the Commission. Please reference the agenda item or subject when submitting either email or mail comments.
Written comments can be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, or sent by postal mail to:
