RALEIGH, N.C. (Feb. 8, 2011) – The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission is seeking nominations for one member to its Nongame Wildlife Advisory Committee. Closing date for nominations is March 10, 2011.

The 18-member committee, which advises the Commission on nongame and endangered wildlife issues across the state, meets four times per year. The person selected should be willing and able to contribute consistently as a volunteer to the efforts of the committee. Committee members have a diverse range of regional, habitat and species-specific expertise and advise the Commission on matters that fit their areas of expertise.

In recent months, the Wildlife Resources Commission has needed assistance on marketing and fund-raising for nongame-related projects. Because of this need, the committee encourages nominations for people who have expertise in these two areas. 

To nominate an individual for the committee, submit a nomination form detailing the reasons for the person’s nomination, a resume, if available, and a cover letter. These documents can be downloaded from the Commission’s website, www.ncwildlife.org, in the Downloads section on the home page or from the box above.

While electronic submissions are preferred, hard copies can be mailed to the Nongame and Wildlife Advisory Committee, Attn: Diane Renzi, Division of Inland Fisheries, MSC 1721, Raleigh, N.C. 27699-1721. 

For more information about the committee or the nomination process, contact Diane Renzi at (919) 707-0226.
