New members sought for Snowmobile Trails Advisory Council

Posted: July 5, 2012 - 11:02pm

ANCHORAGE — The Division of Parks and Outdoor Recreation is inviting interested parties to apply for vacancies on the Snowmobile Trails Advisory Council (SnowTRAC).

Currently, three positions — one representing Southeast Alaska, one representing Western Alaska and one floating position that plays a liaison role between the Outdoor Recreational Trails Advisory board (ORTAB) and SnowTRAC — are vacant.

Board members assist the division director by providing a broad spectrum of citizen input on grant proposals and by making funding recommendations for the Snowmobile Trails Grant Program. The division is seeking commitments from individuals with special knowledge, experience and interest in recreational and practical snowmobile use, and in grant-funded programs. Board members serve a three-year term and meet in person a minimum of one time per year in Anchorage; they may participate in multiple teleconferences as necessary. Transportation to and from the meeting in Anchorage, meals and hotel are paid for with the administrative portion of the Snowmobile Registration Fund.

Those who would like to be considered for appointment on SnowTRAC, submit a letter of interest that describes your professional background and recreational or practical snowmobile interests and knowledge. A current resume is required and replaces the need for an application.

All resumes and letters of interest should be submitted to Darcy Harris, the State Trails Program Coordinator, via email at , or standard mail at 550 W. 7th Avenue, Suite 1380, Anchorage, AK 99501, no later than July 31. Faxed materials can be sent to 907-269-8907. For additional information regarding SnowTRAC or the Snowmobile Trails Program, contact Darcy by email or by phone at 907-269-8699.
