For 2014, Get Involved in Regional Transportation, Environmental Issues

Looking for a civic-minded New Year’s resolution? How about getting involved in transportation, air quality or climate and energy planning in the D.C. region? Two public advisory committees housed at the Council of Governments are recruiting new members—the Air and Climate Public Advisory Committee (ACPAC) and the Transportation Planning Board’s Citizen Advisory Committee (CAC). In addition, COG’s Climate, Energy and Environment Policy Committee (CEEPC) is recruiting new stakeholder members.

The CAC promotes public involvement in transportation planning for the region and provides independent, region-oriented citizen advice to the TPB on transportation plans and issues. It is comprised of 15 area residents, who represent diverse viewpoints on regional transportation issues. Nine members of the CAC are appointed annually by the TPB. The other six members are elected by the previous year’s CAC. The CAC meets one Thursday a month. If you are interested in applying to join the CAC, click here to submit an application by December 23, 2013.

ACPAC advises on air quality, climate and energy, and environmental issues to policy committees of COG. ACPAC is comprised of 18 members chosen by the Metropolitan Washington Air Quality Committee. Members serve staggered 1-3 year terms and represent communities across the region and from various backgrounds, including business/industry, education, scientific, health and environmental sectors. If you are interested in applying to join ACPAC, click here to submit an application by January 10, 2014.

CEEPC is the principal policy adviser to the COG Board of Directors for climate change and energy policy issues.  The committee membership includes elected officials from COG’s 22 member local governments; state environmental, energy and transportation agencies; members of the Maryland and Virginia legislatures; federal and regional agencies, as well as stakeholder organizations and the academic community. If you are interested in applying to join CEEPC as a stakeholder member, click here to submit an application by January 10, 2014.
