The Indiana Department of Natural Resources Lake Michigan Coastal Program seeks nominations for all 13 voting members of the Coastal Advisory Board.
Members of the Coastal Advisory Board represent the coastal area’s various stakeholder groups and provide input to the DNR Coastal Program. Nominations are due by Feb. 27. Current board members are eligible for reappointment, with the exception of the rotating positions. All appointments are made by DNR director Cameron Clark.
