New Community Council Member Recruitment

January 12, 2016

We are looking for a few great men and women!  The Kachemak Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve is seeking interested people to fill 2 vacancies on the Community Council for the Reserve starting in March 2016 as well as 2 people to serve as alternates who will substitute, at quarterly meetings, for council members who are absent.  The primary purpose of the Council is to support the Reserve’s research, education and training programs by providing an organized structure for dialogue and recommendations between Reserve staff and people in the community interested in natural science research and education.

The Council consists of nine voting members who embody a broad base of interests including: education, research, various communities around and outside of the Bay, commercial and sport fishing, recreation and tourism, local businesses, conservation groups, Native Alaskans, oil spill management and response, industry/business, subsistence/personal use, local governments, and citizens at large. Members will be sought who encompass more than one perspective and/or interest.

The Charter that creates the framework for the Council is included with this package. The Council meets at the Reserve headquarters in Homer on a quarterly basis. Applications for new members are due by February 10th, 2016 and the next meeting is Wednesday March 2nd, 2016.

If you are interested in being on the Council, please submit the attached Council Application, references and resume no later than February 10th, 2016. If you have any questions, please call (907) 235-4791 or email isabrahamson@uaa.alaska.edu.  Your interest will be rewarded by the opportunity to help shape the direction of research, education and stewardship in Kachemak Bay – we encourage you to apply!
