  Since 2008, the Alberta Professional Outfitters Society (APOS) has allocated a portion of the annual outfitter renewal fees and waterfowl permit fees to the Wildlife Management Fund (WMF). Over the last 10 years, this fund has contributed over $1.1 million to wildlife stewardship initiatives in Alberta.

The WMF Committee is currently comprised of outfitters and government. The committee is seeking a rural landowner to join as a public member to help make decisions about incoming grant applications. Applicants should have an interest in wildlife conservation, a passion for rural Alberta, and an understanding of the role hunting and outfitting play in wildlife management.

The WMF meets quarterly to review WMF applications and make recommendations to the board of directors. Meetings are held by conference call and may be 2-3 hours in length. Preparation in advance of calls will depend on the number of applications received; it may be anywhere from 4-8 hours per quarter.

Any travel expenses incurred with the authority of the committee will reimbursed in accordance with APOS policy. An honorarium is available if desired.

Interested applicants can provide their cover letter and resume to Jeana Schuurman, managing director of APOS, by Tuesday, October 23, 2018.
