Natural Resources Advisory Commission is seeking applicants
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - The Highlands County Board of County Commissioners is currently seeking an agricultural member to serve on the Natural Resources Advisory Commission. This advisory body speaks and advises the commissioners on matters of natural resource protection, environmental clearances, and the stewardship of conservation efforts undertaken by, in, and for Highlands County.
The board is currently interested in applicants from the following discipline: Agricultural, which represents occupations or sufficient educational credentials related to any of the following: commercial farm, forestry, fishery activities, agri-business, agri-sciences, or agricultural research or education.
Highlands County is fortunate to have many volunteers who serve on various boards and committees. The act of volunteering is considered an altruistic activity, which simply means a selfless concern for the welfare of others. Volunteering is intended to promote good or improve human quality of life. Government itself cannot solve all the nation's challenges. Volunteerism is a means to assist organizations with the issues they face with time, expertise and knowledge.
NRAC meets at the Bert Harris Agriculture Center the last Wednesday of every month at 4 p.m. for approximately one and a half hours.
If interested in serving, contact Corine Burgess at 402-6545 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
