Commission Meeting to be Streamed Live through Website

HARRISBURG, Pa. (Jan. 23) – In a move designed to increase public involvement, the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) has announced that it will provide a live video stream of its business meeting this Thursday.

“We recognize that people are often busy during the day with work, family and other obligations and may not be able to attend our quarterly business meetings,” said PFBC Executive Director John Arway. “By broadcasting the meeting live over the Internet, and then archiving it so it can be viewed later, we’re providing another way for people to stay informed of what the Commission is doing.”

Interested viewers can watch the public meeting from the PFBC website at: http://www.fishandboat.com/video.htm.

The formal meeting will begin at approximately 11:15 a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 24. During the meeting, PFBC staff present recommendations to the full board for their approval.

The public is always welcome to attend the business meetings in person. Committees will meet beginning at 12:40 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 23, and again at 8 a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 24. At this time, only the formal business meeting will be broadcast through the PFBC website.

A complete copy of the meeting schedule and the full agenda for the meeting can be found on the PFBC’s web site at www.fishandboat.com/minutes.htm.
