The Arizona Resource Advisory Council (RAC) is a 15-member statewide advisory council, which provides advice and recommendations to the BLM on resource and land management issues for approximately 12.2 million acres of federal surface and 36 million acres of subsurface mineral estate in Arizona.
The purpose of the Resource Advisory Council is to enable Arizona citizens to have a meaningful say in how public lands are managed. RAC members are selected for their ability to provide informed, objective advice on a variety of public land issues, and their commitment to collaboration in seeking solutions to those issues.
Council members serve three-year terms on a staggered basis. This means that one-third of the council is subject to appointment or reappointment each year.
The RAC meets quarterly. Members serve without salary, but are reimbursed for travel expenses.
