Region 1 Citizen Advisory Committee

Many organized groups are vitally interested in Montana's fish, wildlife, and parks resources. These groups have become more specialized in their interests, making it a challenge for FWP to gather broad input on issues. Especially at the regional level, FWP has an increasing need to more fully involve citizens, sportsmen and sportswomen and non-traditional constituents in decision making, policy development and communication based on regard for the resource, mutual respect and personal relationships. An advisory committee comprised of key citizens can help the department achieve its goals by serving two main functions: providing the agency with information, ideas, emerging trends and initiatives from the public in a setting that welcomes diverse interests, and providing a vehicle for FWP to inform key citizens - with the expectation that they will in turn inform the broader public.

Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks is seeking applicants to fill several volunteer positions on its northwest Montana Region 1 Citizen Advisory Committee.

The CAC is a general advisory committee that provides input and feedback to FWP on diverse issues—from wildlife and fisheries management, to access, state parks, outdoor recreation and law enforcement. The committee is designed to have a membership that represents a variety of northwest Montana communities and natural resource interests. Applicants must live in FWP Region 1, which includes the four-county area of Lincoln, Sanders, Lake, and Flathead (and a small part of Missoula County) in northwest Montana.

The committee typically meets five to seven evenings per year in Kalispell. Members serve three-year terms. Meals and travel expenses are provided.
