Now accepting nominations for new FRAC members

Membership of the Forestry Research Advisory Council offers opportunities to significantly influence the direction of academic and government research in concrete ways. Nominations are now being accepted for new council members. The council meets at least annually, and council members serve staggered terms that last up to three years.

Council members are sought from government agencies (federal, state, and county), private industry, academic institutions, NGOs, and tribal groups. No individual who is currently registered as a federal lobbyist is eligible to serve as a council member. Please forward this request for nominations to qualified individuals who may be interested in applying. Also, if you’d like to nominate someone as a candidate, please send their names and contact information to the designated official Tracy Hancock, whose phone and email are given at the end of this message.
