05/11/2019: "BLM Seeks Nominations"


he Bureau of Land Management (BLM) today announced it is seeking public nominations for four open positions on the San Juan Islands National Monument Advisory Committee (MAC). The nomination period is open until June 13, 2019. The BLM’s Resource Advisory Councils (RACs), of which the MAC is one, help the Bureau carry out its multiple-use mission and stewardship of 245 million acres of public lands.


The Bureau, which manages more land than any other Federal agency, has 36 RACs across the West, where most BLM-managed land is located. Each RAC consists of 10 to 15 members with an interest or expertise in energy and mineral development, ranching, outdoor recreation, conservation, state and local government, tribal and cultural resources, and academia. The diverse membership of each RAC helps ensure BLM land managers receive the varying perspectives they need to achieve their mission of managing the public lands for multiple uses.

"Resource Advisory Councils provide the BLM with vital feedback on current issues, concerns and proposals, and enable us to engage local communities and stakeholders to improve our management of public lands," said Acting BLM State Director Theresa Hanley. "Our goal is to ensure that the membership of every RAC encompasses a wide variety of perspectives and backgrounds to guide our work as effectively as possible.

"Individuals may nominate themselves or others to serve on the MAC. Nominees, who must be residents of Washington, will be reviewed on the basis of their training, education, and knowledge of the San Juan Islands. Nominees should also demonstrate a commitment to consensus building and collaborative decision-making. All nominations must be accompanied by letters of reference from any represented interests or organizations, a completed MAC application, and any other information that speaks to the nominee’s qualifications.

The MAC is seeking nominees for positions representing the public-at-large, wildlife and ecological interests, local government, tribal interests and private landowners. For more information, please contact Monument Manager Marcia deChadenèdes at mdechade@blm.gov or (360) 468-3051
