The Commission

A nine-member board of commissioners oversees the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission. The commissioners are not elected officials; rather, they are appointed by the Nebraska Governor and confirmed by the Legislature. Eight of the commissioners serve each of eight districts across the state. The ninth serves at large. Commissioners serve in a volunteer capacity.
