The Bureau of Land Management’s Northwest Colorado district is seeking public nominations for open positions on the Resource Advisory Council, which advises the BLM on public land issues. The BLM’s RACs, composed of citizens chosen for their expertise in natural resource issues, help the Bureau carry out its stewardship of public lands. Each RAC consists of 10 to 15 members with an interest in public land management, including such individuals as conservationists, ranchers, outdoor recreationists, state and local government officials, tribal officials and academics. Individuals may nominate themselves or others to serve on an advisory council. Nominees, who must be residents of Colorado, 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 letters of reference from any represented interests or organizations; a completed background information nomination form; and any other information that speaks to the nominee’s qualifications.
