The Alaska Community Forest Council is seeking individuals interested in highlighting the importance of forest and tree management in communities throughout Alaska by serving on the Council.
The council is a nonprofit organization that advises the Division of Forestry on how to improve Alaskans’ quality of life by expanding and caring for urban and community forests. The council promotes the management of trees and forests within communities to maximize the many economic,environmental, and social benefits that they provide.
There are currently five open seats on the 15-member Council. Completed applications are due no later than Friday April 30, 2021. New appointees will be notified in late May, and the terms begin on July 1, 2021.
The open seats are: Seat D – Landscape Architect; Seat F – Construction/Right of Way; Seat H – Community Forestry/Beautification; Seat J – Alaska Cooperative Extension Service; and Seat O – Member at Large.
Council members are asked to attend all-day meetings four times each year. Members serve on working committees, handle the normal business responsibilities of a nonprofit, and support the care of trees and forests in the towns where they live. Members attend an orientation before the first meeting and are provided educational opportunities and hands on training. Council members are reimbursed for travel expenses, if applicable.
