After the Sept. 1, 2015 meeting, the PARC Chairperson, Pete Paris, approved the appointment of Cody Krenka to represent sportsmen and Walt Gardner to represent licensed guides.

In addition to these two new representatives, the PARC also includes representation from the Nevada State Board of Health, the Board of Agriculture, the Nevada Farm Bureau Federation and the Nevada Board of Wildlife Commission.
