Membership Applications & Nominations

Completed applications must be received by February 8, 2019.

The Federal Subsistence Board is accepting applications through February 8, 2019 to fill seats on the 10 Subsistence Regional Advisory Councils (Councils). Council membership appointments are typically for three-year terms. There are approximately 42 seats open for appointment among all Councils.

The Councils meet at least twice-a-year and provide recommendations to the Federal Subsistence Board on subsistence management issues. Council meetings serve as a forum for regional public involvement in Federal subsistence management. Council members must be knowledgeable about the uses of fish and wildlife resources in their region and reside in the region they wish to represent.

Individuals may apply for membership themselves, or an individual or organization may nominate someone for Council membership. The application form and information about the application process and the Subsistence Regional Advisory Councils is available on the Federal Subsistence Management Program’s website: www.doi.gov/subsistence/regions.
