Department of Fish and Wildlife's Strategic Vision Committee recently confirmed the appointment of DU's Director of the Western Regional Office Mark Biddlecomb to its Stakeholders Advisory Group.
The goal of the committee is to establish a long-term goal to improve and enhance the Department of Fish and Game's capacity and effectiveness in fulfilling its public trust responsibilities for the protection and management of the state's fish and wildlife, for their ecological values, and for the benefit of the people of the state.
Mark was among a handful of appointees who were selected from 130 candidates. The Stakeholder Advisory Group represents a diverse range of interests affecting state policies that manage fish and wildlife, including individuals representing fishing and hunting
interests, non-profit conservation
organizations, non-consumptive recreational users, landowners, scientific and educational interests, and others dedicated to habitat
conservation and protection of public trust resources. The stakeholder group will advise and support the executive committee and the citizen commission in their work products. Mark will represent DU in the Non-Profit Organization category.
