As a cabinet-level agency, the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks (KDWP) is administered by a Secretary and advised by a seven-member Commission. All Commission positions are appointed by the Governor, with Commissioners serving staggered four-year terms.
Serving as a regulatory body for KDWP, the Commission is a non-partisan board made up of no more than four members of any one political party, advising the Secretary on planning and policy issues regarding administration of KDWP. The driving force behind the Commission's actions are the goals and objectives of managing and promoting the wildlife and natural resources of Kansas.
The Commission typically meets six times a year, and all meetings are accessible and open to the public. Time is also set aside, both during afternoon and evening sessions, for public comment on non-agenda items.
