RALEIGH, N.C. (June 22, 2015) — The deadline to submit nominations for a seat on the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission’s Nongame Wildlife Advisory Committee is June 26.
Two seats are available on the committee, which is made up of 15 North Carolina citizens who advise the Wildlife Commission on nongame wildlife conservation issues across the state. The first seat is an “expert affiliate seat.” Nominees for this seat should have extensive biological, regional, academic, scientific and/or habitat expertise and experience in matters dealing with nongame wildlife conservation in North Carolina.
The second seat is an at-large “affiliate seat.” Nominees for this seat should be qualified individuals from land trusts serving North Carolina, federal natural resource agencies other than the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, non-governmental conservation organizations, industries with operations and/or management that have landscape-scale effects on wildlife, or other organizations that provide a stakeholder voice in wildlife resource conservation. Nominees should have a comprehensive knowledge of nongame wildlife conservation in North Carolina.
The Wildlife Commission asks committee members to participate actively throughout their terms. The committee meets four times a year, usually at the Commission’s headquarters in Raleigh. The 19-member board of Wildlife Commissioners will appoint committee members at its July 16 meeting in Raleigh based on nominees’ credentials, expertise, affiliation and constituency at large.
To nominate an individual for the Nongame Wildlife Advisory Committee, submit a nomination form with information regarding affiliation and expertise, a résumé, if available, and a cover letter.
