A typical Board Meeting

Under the Alaska Administrative Code, "A committee shall meet at least twice a year to remain active under 5 AAC 96.450. A committee may meet at times appropriate to the process described in 5 AAC 96.610, and at other times to formulate regulatory proposals, review and comment on proposals, and consider matters appropriate to the committee's functions under 5 AAC 96.050. A chairman or a majority of the full committee membership may call a regular meeting."

Meetings are always open to the public and are generally attended by department staff and members of the public who can offer background information on agenda topics. Advisory Committees provide a local forum on fish and wildlife issues. Their purpose as established by the Joint Board of Fisheries and Game includes:

  • Developing regulatory proposals
  • Evaluating regulatory proposals and making recommendations to the appropriate board
  • Providing a local forum for fish and wildlife conservation and use, including matters relating to habitat
  • Consulting with individuals, organizations, and agencies
