UTAH - BLM Utah Seeks Nominations for Vacancies on Resource Advisory Council

Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber, 

A second call for public nominations is being accepted for the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Utah Resource Advisory Council (RAC). The BLM will be filling two positions for members whose terms expire on Jan. 12, 2014. The BLM will consider nominations until September 30, 2013.

The two positions open on the Utah RAC are in "Category One" - Public land ranchers and representatives of organizations associated with energy and mineral development, the timber industry, developed outdoor recreation, transportation or rights-of-way, off-highway vehicle use, and commercial recreation. 

Utah residents interested in the management and conservation of public lands have an opportunity to become directly involved through participation on the RAC.
 
The BLM RACs are composed of citizens who are chosen for their expertise in natural resources issues to help the BLM carry out its stewardship of 245 million acres of public lands. The Utah RAC consists of 15 members with a keen interest in public land management, including conservationists, ranchers, outdoor recreationists, state and local government officials, Tribal officials, and academics. The diverse membership of the RAC is aimed at achieving the balanced outlook the BLM needs for its multiple-use mission.
 
Individuals may nominate themselves or others to serve on the advisory council. Nominees, who must be Utah residents, will be judged on the basis of their training, education, and knowledge of the council's geographical area. Nominees should also demonstrate a commitment to consensus-building and collaborative decision making. All nominations must be accompanied by: 1) letters of reference from any represented interests or organizations; 2) a completed RAC application form; and 3) any other information that speaks to the nominee's qualifications.
 
Fillable application forms are available online at: LINK

Nominations should be sent by September 30, 2013, to:
Sherry Foot, Special Programs Coordinator, Bureau of Land Management, Utah State Office, 440 West 200 South, Suite 500, Salt Lake City, Utah 84101. For more information, please contact Sherry Foot at (801)539-4195; fax: (801)539-4013; email address: sfoot@blm.gov

The BLM consults with the Governor's Office before forwarding its recommendations to the Secretary of the Interior for a final decision.
