How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The purpose of a Secure Rural Schools and Community Self-Determination Act resource advisory committee is to improve collaborative relations and to provide advice and recommendations to the Forest Service consistent with Division C, Title VI of Public Law 110-343.The Act describes the duties of the committees as follows: to review projects proposed by counties and other interested parties; to recommend projects and funding; to provide early and continuous coordination with Forest Service officials; to provide frequent opportunities for citizens, organizations, tribes, land management agencies and other interested parties to participate openly and meaningfully, beginning in the early stages of project development; to monitor projects approved under the Act; to advise the designated federal official on the progress of monitoring; and to make recommendations for any appropriate changes or adjustments to projects being monitored.
How is membership balanced?*The committee is comprised of 15 members, five in each of three categories prescribed in the Act. Within each category, the Act identifies specific interests members are to represent. Committees are formed in geographic areas to ensure each national forest located within a participating county or counties has access to a resource advisory committee. The Act requires members to be residents of the state or states within which the committee has jurisdiction.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*The committee generally will meet 1-4 times per year as needed to perform its duties, or as often as needed.

Recommendation RemarksThis committee did not meet in FY 2020. New members were appointed,
This committee did not meet in FY2019. All members' terms expired 9/30/2017. We did not immediately recruit new members because Congress had not reauthorized the SRS RAC program. Once it was reauthorized we began recruiting efforts, but ceased when the National RAC charter expired on June 21, 2018. After the charter was renewed on Dec 3, 2018, we began recruiting again. We submitted the nomination package in June, 2019, and are awaiting the final decision on member appointments from the Department of Agriculture.

This may take the form of verbal reports and presentations at committee meetings, committee field trips and monitoring activities.Narrative Description*By recommending projects that maintain and improve the health of national forest ecosystems and improve cooperative relationships among the people who use and care for the national forests, the Secure Rural Schools resource advisory committees support the Forest Service mission to sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of the Nation’s forests and grasslands to meet the needs of present and future generations. The committees specifically support Forest Service strategic goals to 1. Restore, sustain, and enhance the national forests; and 2. Provide and sustain benefits to the American people.
