The Governor’s Advisory Council for Hunting, Fishing and Conservation is seeking qualified candidates to fill positions on the Game Commission and Fish and Boat Commission boards.

Game Commission

An individual is needed to represent District 5 on the Game Commission board of directors. District 5 includes the counties of Bradford, Columbia, Lycoming, Montour, Northumberland, Sullivan, Tioga and Union.

The district is currently represented with distinction by Commissioner Charles E. Fox, whose term expires October 15, 2020. 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.

“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 Gov. 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.”

Per the Game Code, applicants must be well-informed about wildlife conservation and restoration and be residents of the district. Commissioners receive no compensation for their service but are reimbursed for travel expenses.

Fish & Boat Commission

An individual is needed to represent District 2 on the Fish and Boat Commission’s board of directors. District 2 includes the counties of Allegheny, Armstrong, Beaver, Fayette, Greene, Indiana, Washington and Westmoreland.

The district is currently represented with distinction by Commissioner Rocco S. Ali, whose term expires October 15, 2020.  Commissioner Ali’s replacement will serve a four-year term, and is eligible to be reappointed twice but must participate in a competitive process with other interested candidates to gain a second or subsequent term.

“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 Robb Miller, director of the advisory council. “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.”

Per Title 30 (Fish), applicants must be competent citizens of the district and well-informed about conservation, restoration, fish and fishing and boats and boating. Commissioners receive no compensation for their service but are reimbursed for travel expenses.

To Apply

Candidates will be interviewed by the advisory council and rated on their responses, as well as their professional and volunteer experience with aquatic conservation and related activities.

Gov. Tom Wolf will select the final candidate to be presented to the Senate for confirmation.

Individuals interested in applying should email a resume and cover letter to Robb Miller, Governor’s Advisor for Hunting, Fishing and Conservation, at: robmille@pa.gov.

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