The Pennsylvania Governor’s Advisory Council for Hunting, Fishing and Conservation is seeking qualified candidates to represent District 5 on the Pennsylvania Game Commission’s (PGC) board of directors and District 2 on the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission’s (PFBC) board of directors.

District 5 includes Bradford, Columbia, Lycoming, Montour, Northumberland, Sullivan, Tioga and Union counties. PGC Commissioners are eligible to serve three four-year terms, but must participate in a competitive process with other interested candidates to gain a second or subsequent term. Applicants must be well-informed about wildlife conservation and restoration and be residents of the district. 

“The Governor is reaching out to the hunting and trapping community in District 5 to find a diverse group of applicants, one of whom will be nominated by Governor Wolf to fill this vacancy,” said Robb Miller, director of the advisory council. “We’re encouraging anyone interested in volunteering to serve on the board to send us a letter of intent and their professional resume.”

District 2 includes the counties of Allegheny, Armstrong, Beaver, Fayette, Greene, Indiana, Washington and Westmoreland. PFBC Commissioners are eligible to be reappointed twice but must participate in a competitive process with other interested candidates to gain a second or subsequent term. Applicants must be competent citizens of the district and well-informed about conservation, restoration, fish and fishing and boats and boating. 

“The Governor is reaching out to the angling and boating community in District 2 to recruit a diverse group of applicants, one of whom will be nominated by Governor Wolf to fill this upcoming vacancy,” said Miller. “We’re encouraging anyone interested in volunteering for the board to send us a letter of intent describing why they’d like to serve along with their professional resume.”

Commissioners receive no compensation for their service but are reimbursed for travel expenses. Individuals interested in applying should email a resume and cover letter to Robb Miller, Governor’s Advisor for Hunting, Fishing and Conservation, [email protected].

Applications will be accepted until Friday, July 31, 2020.
