The board advises the Commission on conservation issues surrounding nongame species across the state and meets four times per year, usually at the Commission’s headquarters in Raleigh. The Commission will appoint committee members at its July meeting.
Two seats are “expert affiliate seats,” reserved for people with extensive expertise and experience in dealing with nongame wildlife conservation in North Carolina. The remaining two are at-large “affiliate seats,” reserved for people from organizations that provide a stakeholder voice in wildlife resource conservation — such as land trusts, non-governmental conservation organizations and federal natural resource agencies other than the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
