Advisory Committee Recognition
The Advisory Committee Recognition Program honors Advisory Committee (AC) members for their tireless efforts in service to Alaska's fish and game resources. Awards are given out annually to current and former AC members.
Advisory committee members who have demonstrated exemplary service in helping to manage Alaska's fish and game resources are nominated each fall by Department employees, board members, and fellow advisory committee members. Up to five awards are given each year. Criteria for the Excellence in Service award include:
- The service resulted in an action that improved the economic or community health of Alaska or a region, or the sustainability of Alaska's resources.
- The service was unique, innovative, and commendable in the face of diverse opinions, and difficult or unusual circumstances.
- The service demonstrated leadership in conducting AC functions.
Longevity Awards are awarded to Advisory Committee members who have served at least six years or more in their local committee (years do not need to be consecutive). Awards are given automatically after six years of service.
