This is a pretty simple process. Show up, throw your name in the hat, get voted to represent sportsmen in the NW region for the next two years. I hope we get a good turnout. We have a statewide meeting in a little more than a week and will be taking what we hear from sportsmen in Glenwood Springs to the statewide meeting.
Sportsmen and women sought to represent region on Sportsmen's Roundtable, elections to be held in Glenwood Springs
GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo. - Hunters and anglers interested in expressing ideas and concerns to their representatives on the Sportsmen's Roundtable are invited to gather at a public meeting beginning at 6:30 p.m., Monday, Feb. 29 at the Glenwood Springs Community Center, Room Sopris 'C', 100 Wulfsohn Road. Colorado Parks and Wildlife officials will attend to update sportsmen about recent issues and answer questions about a variety of hunting and fishing topics.
In addition to regular business, attendees will have the opportunity to nominate and vote to elect one of two Northwest Region representatives to the Sportsmen's Roundtable. The other elected member will be chosen at a future meeting in 2016.
Anyone wishing to represent the Northwest Region on the Sportsmen's Roundtable should attend and be prepared to offer a brief explanation about why they should be elected.
Elected members serve two-year terms and can run twice. Their duties include gathering input from the region's sportsmen, organizing and leading two regional meetings and attending two statewide meetings with high-level representatives from Colorado Parks and Wildlife.
Colorado Parks and Wildlife formed the Sportsmen's Roundtable in 2012 to provide an opportunity for sportsmen to submit input about wildlife management decisions directly to CPW leadership.
Regional Sportsmen’s Caucus meetings are open to participation by any hunter or angler who has an interest in the Northwest Region. The meetings can include any number of participants; no active hunter or angler will be excluded from the discussion.
In addition to voicing their opinions at regional meetings, members of the public can contact their representatives directly at any time.
The next statewide Sportsmen's Roundtable meeting is scheduled for March, 5, in Buena Vista.
