The purpose of a resource advisory committee is to improve collaborative relationships and to provide advice and recommendations to the BLM consistent with the objectives of the Act. The Committees for the five western Oregon BLM districts covered under the Act are composed of 15 members, plus 6 alternates, representing broad interest categories.
Committee membership must be balanced in terms of the categories of interest represented as follows:
—Category One—Representatives of organized labor; developed outdoor recreation; off-highway vehicle use; energy and/or mining development; timber industry; or holders of federal grazing or other land use permits.
—Category Two—Representatives of nationally, regionally or locally recognized environmental organizations; dispersed recreation, archaeological and historic interests; or wild horse and burro groups.
—Category Three—State, county or local elected officials; representatives of Native American Tribes; school officials or teachers, or the public-at-large.
Any individual or organization may nominate one or more persons to serve on the Committees. Individuals may also nominate themselves or others, and current members may reapply. Nominees must reside within one of the counties that are (in whole or part) within the BLM District boundaries of the Committee(s) on which membership is sought. A person may apply for and serve on more than one Committee. Nominees will be evaluated based on their education, training, experience relating to land use issues, recommendations from others, and knowledge of the geographical area of the Committee. Nominees must also demonstrate a commitment to collaborative resource decision-making. Members are appointed or reappointed for 3-year terms.
