R3 Committee

The R3 (Recruitment, Retention, Reactivation) Committee was established by the President to be comprised of members from the Board as appointed by the President and affirmed by the Board. This committee was previously known as the Hunter, Angler, Shooting Sports and Wildlife Recreation Committee. The committee’s approved Statement of Purpose:

“To function as WAFWA’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 Directors for either informational purposes or their approval at both the mid-winter or annual business meetings. 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.”
