From a press release. I would do this, if I weren't already over-subscribed. It would be a good place to get a bike advocate or two.
Are you interested in topics like clean energy, air quality, climate change, and sea level rise? Do you want to get involved the public policy process?
You could be a great fit for the region’s Air and Climate Public Advisory Committee. ACPAC advises on air quality, climate, and energy issues to policy committees of the Council of Governments. This means ACPAC members get to learn about and share input on a variety of regional plans, including transportation priorities and electric vehicles. Members also regularly hear presentations from state and local environmental officials and groups like the American Lung Association, Natural Resources Defense Council, and the Georgetown Climate Center.
ACPAC is currently looking for new members with a variety of backgrounds and interests. The group consists of 18 members, 6 each from D.C., Maryland and Virginia. For 2013, there are 4 openings (1 in DC, 1 in MD and 2 in VA). If you are interested in joining ACPAC, please fill out its online form by January 11.
ACPAC meets monthly at the Council of Governments. The COG offices are at 777 North Capitol Street NE in Washington, DC, 1 ½ blocks from the Union Station Metro Red Line. Underground parking is also available. For more information see the ACPAC description online.
