Chugach State Park Citizen’s Advisory Board Vacancies
(Anchorage, AK) - The Chugach State Park Citizens Advisory Board announces upcoming vacancies and solicits applications for four (4) upcoming board positions. The purposes of the Advisory Board are to promote conservation and protect Chugach State Park, as well as facilitate communication between the public and Park managers.
The Board is comprised of 15 members, selected to represent a broad spectrum of public interests involved with or affected by the Park. The nomination process is designed to ensure that no single viewpoint dominates the Board. In addition, the bylaws call upon each board member to represent the broad public interest rather than advocate on behalf of one specific group.
If selected as a member of the board, you would be expected to actively serve on two committees in addition to attending monthly board meetings. You should anticipate a commitment of 8 hours per month. Board meetings are held the second Monday of the month beginning at 6 p.m. Committee meetings are scheduled by the committee chairs and vary in frequency depending on project needs and deadlines. Current committees include: Access, Budget, Nominations, Trails, Planning, Seward Highway Design and Wildlife.
Board members serve for three years and terms are staggered so that typically five of the fifteen seats open each year. Your application will be considered for the term beginning in January 2010.
An application form may be obtained by contacting the Potter Section House at (907) 345-5014 or downloading an application from the web at: www.dnr.alaska.gov/parks/misc/advisboardapp.doc
