Advisory Councils provide advice and recommendations for the BLM to consider on resource and land management issues within the BLM. The Bureau of Land Management maintains 37 chartered advisory committees located in the West. Advisory Committees are sounding boards for BLM initiatives, regulatory proposals and policy changes. Each citizen-based council consists of 10 to 15 members from diverse interests in local communities, and they assist in the development of committee recommendations that address public land management issues. Advisory councils are critical in assisting the BLM in continuing to be a good neighbor in the communities that the agency serves.

Planned agenda items for the March 20 DAC meeting include information regarding the Notice of Intent for the California Desert Conservation Area Plan and updates from council members and the BLM California Desert District Manager.
