Commission Guidebook and Resources


The resources provided below were funded by the Multistate Conservation Grant Program (grant #F22AP00570-00), a program supported with funds from the Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration Program and jointly managed by the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. This 2022 revision of the Commission Guidebook was prepared by the Wildlife Management Institute (WMI) with support from the Association of the Fish and Wildlife Agencies (AFWA). WMI was established in 1911, and works with federal, state, and provincial agencies, Congress, college and university researchers and educators, other private conservation organizations, and professional associations. It advises, testifies, provides education services and, in a variety of other ways, improves the professional foundation of wildlife management. 

This guidebook could not have been developed without the assistance, support, and input of AFWA and many state fish and wildlife agency directors and Commission members.
