R3 Committee

Recruitment, Retention and Reactivation

Previously known as the Hunter, Angler, Shooting Sports and Wildlife Recreation Committee

Statement of Purpose:
"To function as the Association’s principal forum for discussing, gathering information and/or identifying actions relative to all aspects of these important issues and to report its deliberations and recommendations to the WAFWA directors for either informational purposes or their approval at both the mid-winter or annual business meetings of the Association. Further, once actions are agreed upon by the collective body of directors, the committee’s leadership and membership will be the principal means to implement these positions/priorities within WAFWA member agencies where there is interest in doing so and/or advance and advocate these priorities and proposed actions within the framework of AFWA to achieve even greater and more meaningful results."
