Janice Vetter Named Game and Fish Employee of the Year

Janice Vetter, administrative assistant for the North Dakota Game and Fish Department’s fisheries division in Bismarck, received the agency’s Director’s Award for professional excellence during the department’s annual meeting Dec. 8 in Bismarck.

Terry Steinwand, Game and Fish director, said Vetter has contributed greatly to the department’s efforts in oversight of all public and private fish stocking efforts. “This includes assisting and sometimes taking the lead in ensuring proper permitting of all trapping, selling and movement of bait and other fish in and out of North Dakota,” Steinwand said.

Vetter was also recognized for her role on the statewide fishing tournament committee, and her work with paddlefish snagging season, private fish hatcheries and bait vendors.

Steinwand said Vetter creates a lasting positive experience with private citizens and has truly enhanced the department’s public image. “Janice is extremely personable, and multiple times every year we receive favorable comments acknowledging her friendliness and willingness to assist.”
