The Invasive Species Council of California, chaired by California Department of Food and Agriculture Secretary A.G. Kawamura, seeks to appoint 24 members to the California Invasive Species Advisory Committee (CISAC). Nominations must be postmarked by May 8, 2009.

Committee members may serve on the CISAC for no more than two consecutive terms. Terms are limited to three years. Members receive no compensation, but may receive reimbursement for travel expenses.

Individuals interested in being considered for an appointment should send a brief summary explaining the nominee’s suitability to serve on the CISAC, a resume or curriculum vitae, and at least two letters of reference.
