“We are pleased to welcome these new commissioners to the board,” stated Monty Crump, board chair of the Commission. “They are each well-qualified to serve on behalf of North Carolinians to help establish policies and regulations governing hunting, fishing, trapping, boating and lands management in North Carolina.”
Members serve until reappointed or replaced. The next term turnover will take place in 2023.
