Wisconsin Citizens Opportunity to Participate in WI Conservation Congress Resolution Process

The Wisconsin Conservation Congress (WCC) is an independent organization of citizens that advises the Wisconsin Natural Resources Board and the Department of Natural Resources on how to responsibly manage Wisconsin’s natural resources. Each year citizens have an opportunity to submit ideas as “resolutions” to the WCC. In mid-January the WCC District Leadership Council agreed to support the annual Spring Hearings Resolution process via an online process.

Wisconsin citizens can submit proposed resolutions via the online process which will open on Wednesday, February 15, 2023. Resolutions must meet the following criteria:
1. The concern must be of statewide impact.
2. The concern must be practical, achievable and reasonable.
3. The concern must be within the mission and vision of the Wisconsin Conservation Congress.

An individual citizen may submit no more than two resolutions per year. Those interested in submitting a resolution are encouraged to reach out to the resolution review committee or their WCC County Chair for guidance in drafting a resolution. WCC County Chairs contact information can be found on the WCC DNR website.

The review committee contacts can be found on the WCC DNR website.

Additional tips on preparing a resolution are available on the WCC and DNRs Spring Hearings website.

Resolutions will be accepted until March 1, 2023. At the close of the submission process, the resolutions will be reviewed by a committee of WCC delegates to ensure they meet the criteria for inclusion and will be prepared for the online input which kicks off on Monday, April 10 and will close on Thursday, April 13.

For further information or questions, contact Terri Roehrig, Vice Chair Wisconsin Conservation Congress at 920-540-2775.
