    One of our Members has contacted me via a PM and I passed the information along to him. I also told him if was still unsure, let me know and I will call the District ranger for details/particulars.

    I talked with a person who is helping to form the committee and he said that they won't be starting to look at nominations until after March 16th.

    In terms of time commitments, if nominated you would meet quarterly, and would be required to do some research before each meeting. The position is for a four year term and is nominated by the department of agriculture in Washington.

    There are a few positions open, but they are trying to get people with experience in the sectors that affect the area (i.e. Timber, minerals, etc). They have a general category and I believe that is where the experience of off-road sports would be from. If someone has the nomination form, it might explain a little better about what categories they are looking for (someone can fit multiple areas).

    Here are the catagories that they are looking for:

    • Organized labor or non-timber forest product harvester groups
    • Nationally recognized environmental organizations
    • Hold State elected office or their designee
    • Developed outdoor recreation, off highway vehicle users, or commercial recreation activities;
    • Regionally or locally recognized environmental organizations
    • Hold county or local elected office
    • Energy and mineral development interests; or commercial or recreational fishing interests
    • Dispersed recreational activities
    • American Indian tribes within or adjacent to committee area
    • Commercial timber industry
    • Archaeological and historical interests
    • School officials or teachers
    • Hold Federal grazing or other land use permits, or represent nonindustrial private forest land owners, within the area for which the committee is organized
    • Nationally or regionally recognized wild horse and burro interest groups, wildlife or hunting organizations, or watershed associations
    • Represent the affected public at large.


    I can apply for a nomination for the "Off highway vehicle user", but if there is someone who has more experiace accross the fields you may be better qualified to repesend. Although my family is a private forest land owner, we are just outside of oscoda county.

    I received a letter, "I am pleased to inform you that the Forest Service is moving forward with selections for Huron-Manistee Resource Advisory Committee. Your name will be forwarded to the Secretary of Agriculture, as a second or third backup in case the first candidate is not selected by the Secretary. You have been selected as a backup for Category B, dispersed recreational activities interest group."

    Anyone else get a response?
