FWCP’s Columbia region seeks new board member
If you have experience in conserving and enhancing local fish and wildlife, then you may be interested joining the Fish & Wildlife Compensation Program’s (FWCP) board as a public representative for a three-year term.
Board members review and approve funding for all FWCP fish and wildlife projects in the region, and support planning and project delivery. This year, the FWCP’s Columbia Region board approved $5.5 million for 43 fish and wildlife projects.
“We have an experienced and knowledgeable board that works closely with our fish and wildlife technical committees to ensure projects we fund are in alignment with our action plans, and reflect regional board priorities,” said board co-chair Trevor Oussoren. “We’re interested in public representatives who can bring a regional perspective to our board.”
If you are interested in applying or nominating someone else, contact FWCP’s Columbia Region manager, Crystal Klym at 250-365-4591 or [email protected] for an application package. All applications must be submitted by Wednesday, September 30 at 4:30 p.m. PDT.
The FWCP is a partnership of First Nations, public stakeholders, BC Hydro, the Province of B.C., and Fisheries and Oceans Canada to conserve and enhance fish and wildlife in watersheds impacted by BC Hydro dams. Learn more at fwcp.ca.
