The Bureau of Land Management seeks public nominations for five positions on the Bears Ears National Monument Advisory Committee. As published in a notice in the Federal Register, the BLM will consider nominations for 30 days, according to the BLM.
As a land management agency with a multiple-use mission, the BLM in a statement said it seeks out and values diverse input from citizens who care about the stewardship of America’s public lands. The committee provides advice and recommendations for the BLM to consider on a wide range of public land management issues. Members should plan to meet quarterly. Although members serve without monetary compensation, travel and per diem expenses are reimbursed at current rates for government employees. Committee members will be appointed to three-year terms.
Nominations are being accepted for the following positions: a representative of the public-at-large; a representative of the conservation community; a representative with paleontological expertise; a representative of private landowners; and a representative of local business owners.
Individuals can nominate themselves or others to serve on the committee. Nominees will be reviewed on the basis of their training, education, and knowledge of the Bears Ears geographic area. Nominees should also demonstrate a commitment to consensus building and collaborative decision-making. At least one letter of reference must accompany all nominations from any represented interests or organizations, a completed RAC application (available at: goo.gl/1Z6V18), and any other information that speaks to the nominee’s qualifications.
Nominees should note the interest area(s) they are applying to represent on their application. Visit www.blm.gov/get-involved/rac-near-you/utah/benm-mac for additional information, according to the BLM.
Nominations must be emailed or postmarked by May 22, and should be sent to the Monticello Field Office, 365 North Main, Monticello, UT 84535, Attention: BENM-MAC Nominations, or email@example.com with the subject line BENM-MAC Nominations.
