Nominations are due March 14, 2013. The BLM,,6s RACs, composed of citizens chosen for theft" expert- ise in natural resource issues, help the Bureau carry out its steward- ship of more than 245 million acres of public lands. The Bureau, which manages more land than any other federal agency, has 29 RACs across the West, where most BLM-man- aged land is located. Each RAC consists of 10-15 members with an ilnterest or exOertise in public land  management,i'c[udlng such indii:! viduals asconservationists ranch-. ers, outdoor recreationists, state and local government officials, Tribal officials, and academics. The diverse nembership of each RAC helps ensure that BLM land managers get the varying perspec- tives they need to achieve their mission, which is to manage the public lands for multiple uses. ,,6Each of the RACs lend their unique combination of geographic and resource expertise to inform the BLM,A6s decisions,,,l) said Acting BLM Director Mike Pool. ,)k6The members of our RACs help our field offices by acting as sounding boards in all types of re- source management issues. They are a tremendous resource for field managers across the West.,,?a Individuals may nominate them- selves or others to serve on an ad- visory council.. Nominees, who must be residents of the state or states where the RAC has jurisdic- tion, will be judged on the basis of their training, education,' and knowledge of the council,.6s geo- graphical area. Nominees should also demonstrate a commitment to consensus building and collabora- tive decisionmaking. All nomina- tions must be accompanied by let- ters of reference from any repr e- sented interests or organizations; a completed RAC application; and any other information that speaks to the nominee's qualifications. Each of the 29 RACs has differ- ent positions open in the following categories: Category One ,,i Public land ranchers and representatives of or- ganizations associated with energy and mineral development, the tim- ber industry, transportation or rights-of-way, off-highway vehicle use, and commercial recreation. Category Two ,,i Representa- tives of nationally or regionally recognized environmental organi- zati0s; ardhhological and histOrf- cal orgffnizations, ' , dispersed recreation activities;,and wild horse and burro organizations.
