Commission seeks feedback on new Director

Oct. 14, 2014

SALEM, Ore.— A national search is underway for a new Director for the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife.  The first step in the recruitment process is to gather public input on the qualifications the Director should have.  An online survey also asks for thoughts about issues the new Director is likely to face in the next ten years.  The survey results will be used by the Commission and the Department of Administrative Services in recruiting and screening candidates for the position.

“We’re inviting everyone to give us their thoughts about this important decision,” said Commission Chair Bobby Levy.  “The survey will help us select the right person to lead the department.”

The online survey will be open through Oct. 27, 2014. 

The public will have the opportunity meet the final candidates for the Director position at a public meeting on Feb. 12, 2015 at the ODFW headquarters in Salem.  The Commission will interview the finalists at their meeting on February 13. 

The survey is available at  A link to the survey and details on the recruitment process and timeline can be found on the ODFW website at
