BLM seeking nominations for council

RBC I The Bureau of Land Management is seeking additional nominations for five openings on its Northwest Colorado Resource Advisory Council.
The Northwest RAC is one of three advisory councils to BLM Colorado. It’s composed of 15 citizens appointed by the Secretary of the Interior. The Northwest RAC advises the BLM Colorado Northwest District, which includes the Grand Junction, White River, Little Snake, Kremmling and Colorado River Valley BLM field offices.
Members represent diverse interests from one of three categories:
Category One — representing BLM grazing permittees; energy and mineral development; the timber industry; transportation or rights-of-way; off-highway vehicle use; and commercial recreation.
Category Two — representing nationally or regionally recognized environmental organizations; archaeological and historical organizations; dispersed recreation activities; and wild horse and burro organizations.
Category Three — representing state, county or local elected officials; state agencies responsible for natural resource management; Indian Tribes within or adjacent to the area for which the RAC is organized; employees of academic institutions who are involved in natural sciences; and the public-at-large.
Nominations and letters of recommendation must be received by July 8, 2011. Nomination forms are available at http://www.blm.gov/ co/st/en /BLM_Resources/racs.html.
BLM held an earlier call for nominations this spring. BLM received nominations from highly qualified candidates, but the overall number of nominations was low. Individuals who previously submitted their nomination do not have to re-submit a nomination package.
