The Councils meet at least twice a year and provide recommendations to the Federal Subsistence Board on subsistence management issues. Council meetings serve as a forum for regional public involvement in Federal subsistence management. Council members must be knowledgeable about the uses of fish and wildlife resources in their region and reside in the region they wish to represent.
Individuals may apply for membership themselves, or an individual or organization may nominate someone for Council membership. Additional information on the application process and the Subsistence Regional Advisory Councils is available on the Federal Subsistence Management Program’s website: www.doi.gov/subsistence/regions or by contacting Katerina Wessels, Council Coordination Division Supervisor at the Office of Subsistence Management, at (800) 478- 1456 or (907) 786-3885 or Katerina_wessels@fws.gov.
