Courtesy of the incomparable Robin Rosetta (subscribe to her listserv here – you’ll be glad you did), we received word that the Oregon Invasive Species Council is looking for nominees for some soon-to-be-available council positions. The council has a vital mission — to facilitate communication, cooperation and education on invasive species problems (such as sudden oak death, pictured above). It has 13 members, and three have terms that will expire on Dec. 31, including Chris Guntermann, who represents nurseries. If you know someone with expertise in marine issues, outreach, the seed industry, aquaculture, the shipping industry or nurseries, you may nominate them to serve. By state law, the council makeup must reflect the geographic, cultural and economic diversity of the state. Terms are for two years, with a two-term limit. Nominations are due Dec. 8, 2008. Send nominations – including name, title, phone, FAX, e-mail, mailing address, and a description of qualifications – to Lisa A. DeBruyckere, OISC coordinator, 6159 Rosemeadow Lane N.E., Salem, OR, 97317, or e-mail email@example.com. For details on the qualifications and duties, e-mail her or call her at 503-704-2884.
