The Board of Game Commissioners is comprised of eight board members, each selected by the Governor, and confirmed by majority vote of the state Senate. Title 34, the law that governs the Board, requires that each member be a citizen of the Commonwealth, and well informed about wildlife conservation and restoration. Game Commissioners are appointed from various geographical districts of the state to ensure uniform representation for all residents. These districts are not the same as Game Commission agency regions.
Game Commissioners individually hold office for terms of eight years, but may remain seated for an additional six months if no successor is named. Game Commissioners are volunteers and receive no compensation for their services, but may be reimbursed for travel expenses.
Game Commissioners function as a board of directors, establishing policy for the agency; they are not agency employees. Although they are selected by district, they represent all Pennsylvanians and the state’s 480 species of wild birds and mammals.
