Candidates Needed For WDFW Disabilities Advisory

The Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission is seeking applicants to fill three vacancies on its advisory committee for persons with disabilities. The seven-member committee advises the commission on issues of concern for hunters and fishers with disabilities, including special hunts, modified sporting equipment, access to public land and recreational opportunities. Committee members are appointed by the commission, which sets policy for the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW).

Qualified applicants must have a permanent physical disability and reside in Washington state.

The vacant positions represent WDFW Region 1 (Pend Oreille, Spokane, Stevens, Ferry, Lincoln, Whitman, Garfield, Columbia, Walla Walla and Asotin counties); WDFW Region 2 (Okanogan, Douglas, Chelan, Grant and Adams counties); and WDFW Region 6 (Kitsap, Clallam, Jefferson, Grays Harbor, Mason, Thurston, Pacific and Pierce counties).

Members serve four-year terms and are required to attend advisory committee meetings, held at least twice each year. Members serve without compensation, but receive reimbursement for travel expenses.

For additional information, prospective candidates can contact the WDFW Office of Human Resources (360-902-8132) or visit the commission’s website. To receive consideration, applicants must submit a resume and a statement of interest by July 10, 2014, to DFW Human Resources Office, Washington Department Fish and Wildlife, 600 Capitol Way North, Olympia, WA 98501-1091.
