Idaho Resource Advisory Council

Welcome to the BLM Idaho Resource Advisory Council (RAC). Resource advisory councils (RACs) offer opportunities for citizens from all backgrounds and interests to have a voice in the management of public lands and its resources.  Each RAC consists of 12 to 15 members from diverse interests in local communities, including ranchers, environmental groups, tribes, state and local government officials, academics and other public land users.

RACs typically meet three to four times per year. Members are selected for their ability to provide informed, objective advice on a broad array of public lands issues and their commitment to collaboration in seeking solutions to those issues. Council members must be Idaho residents. Members are appointed to three-year terms and may be reappointed to consecutive terms. Members serve without salary but are reimbursed travel expenses.

If you are interested in learning more about the BLM and would like to be involved in land policy, join a resource advisory committee today!
