Alaska Resource Advisory Council

The Resource Advisory Council (RAC) has up to 15 members who provide advice and recommendations to the BLM Alaska State Director on resource and land management issues for approximately 70 million acres of BLM-managed public land in Alaska.

The RAC meets 2-3 times per year for 1-3 days per meeting. Membership includes a cross section of Alaskans from around the state representing energy, tourism and commercial recreation interests; environmental, archeological or historic interests; and elected officials, Alaska Native organizations, and the public at large. Council members are selected for their ability to provide informed, objective advice on a broad array of public lands issues and their commitment to collaboration and creating solutions to those issues.

Members are appointed to three-year terms and may be reappointed to consecutive terms. Council members must be Alaska residents. Members serve without salary, but are reimbursed travel expenses.

If you or someone you know would like information about serving on the BLM Alaska RAC, please watch this member testimonial video and contact the RAC Coordinator.
