CPW Accepting Applications for Sportmen's Roundtable

by: Tom McInerney 5/8/2018
Last week Colorado Parks and Wildlife posted a news release asking for applications for their statewide Sportsmen's Roundtable.

Lots of us have opinions about how our fisheries should be managed. This is an opportunity to express them somewhere it might make a difference. If you're able, I'd suggest applying.

Some important snippets from the CPW news release:

"Sportsmenís Roundtable members serve as delegates for regional hunters, trappers and anglers, bringing feedback and comments directly to CPW leadership by a variety of means, including two in-person meetings each year.

CPW is seeking two members from the northwest region, one from the northeast, and three from the southwest. For details on regional boundaries, please see a map of the regions on CPW website.

Responsibilities of members include:
Participating in a half-day meeting twice a year at different locations around the state.
Participating in conference calls every two to three months.
Sharing information and ideas with other sportsmen and CPW staff including the Director and Leadership Team members on pressing issues.
The two-year term runs from August 2018 through July 2020."

"Our Roundtable members are a very important part of our decision-making process," said CPW Director Bob Broscheid. "Through the delegates, we get an accurate feel for what sportsmen and women are thinking early in the process, helping guide discussions and decisions about a variety of wildlife management issues."

Applications are due by 5:00 p.m. May 18, 2018

I applied, hope you will too.

I just submitted my application. Thanks for sharing Tom. That would be great if someone from the forum ended up on this committee.

Good luck for those who applied. A few years back I applied and didn't make the cut/vote. Those who did had a strong interest in hunting over fishing. Keep that in mind when applying as I'm sure that's still true.

Great to hear Chad, Iíd be curious what you will be allowed to discuss or comment on publicly if anything for current topics or if itís moslty behind closed doors when not in the public forum.

bluecollarguy thanks and as I understand it at this point, the meetings are open to the public. I'd think we can discuss the topics and if so, I will for sure do so. Thanks panfishin! CL

I agree that this is great news Chad. I trust that you will be a strong and wise voice to represent the fisherpeople of this state. Looking forward to your future commentary.
