Legislation StatusEnacted
How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The committee will accomplish its purpose through diverse broad representation ensuring a wide range of perspectives are brought to bear and through regular public meetings to receive, review and recommend proposals benefitting National Forest System lands and the people who use them.
How is membership balanced?*The South Tongass RAC comprises 3 boroughs. There are 3-7 members from each borough to ensure regional representation. The current breakdown is 6 females and 8 males which is close to an even split. We lack complete racial and ethnic information but the data we have shows at least 3 Alaska Natives and 9 whites on the RAC.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*The South Tongass Resource Advisory Committee was newly created October 2021 and will not meet until October 2022 or later. Thereafter it will meet 1-2 times/year. These meetings are essential to receiving, reviewing and recommending proposals and ensuring Secure Rural Schools Title II funds are disbursed.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*The RAC brings together representatives from various small communities and various walks of life to receive, review and recommend proposals that benefit National Forest System lands. No other committees perform this function with such widespread and informed local knowledge.
Why close or partially close meetings?Meetings are open to the public.
Recommendation RemarksCurrent plan is for RAC to meet in early FY23 to make recommendations. Focus will then shift to nominations and filling all representative slots. Thereafter, RAC will meet twice per year.
