Outdoor Recreational Trails Advisory Board recruiting for two board positions
(Anchorage, AK) – The Division of Parks and Outdoor Recreation invites interested parties with special knowledge, experience, and interest in outdoor recreation and grant-funded programs, to apply for two vacant seats on the Outdoor Recreational Trails Advisory Board. Letters of interest, including a questionnaire found on the Alaska State Trails Program website, and resumes are currently being accepted from applicants that would like to represent Alaskans from the Copper River/ Mat-Su region and from Southeast Alaska.
The primary role of the ORTAB is to assist in the evaluation of grant proposals for the Recreational Trail Grant and Land and Water Conservation Fund programs. ORTAB members may also be asked for advice on other subjects such as the review of proposals for State Park land acquisitions.
If you would like to be considered for appointment on the ORTAB, please submit a resume, completed questionnaire ( can be found at http://dnr.alaska.gov/parks/misc/ortaboard.htm), and a letter that describes your professional background and recreational interests, to the State Trails Program Coordinator, Darcy Harris, by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or fax (907) 269-8907, by Oct. 21.
We hope to select individuals that represent the regional character of the areas mentioned. Once appointed, these positions will last for a term of three years. The board meets approximately two times per year or as needed. Additional information regarding ORTAB and the Recreational Trail Grant program can be found at www.alaskastatetrails.org.
