County Executive Isiah Leggett is seeking applicants to fill six vacancies on the Energy and Air Quality Advisory Committee. Individuals with either an air quality or energy background are encouraged to apply. Applicants must be Montgomery County residents.
The committee is particularly interested in scientists, engineers and environmental health specialists with professional experience, education and knowledge of air quality, emissions modeling or energy efficient technologies.
The 15-member committee advises the County Executive and County Council on the development, promotion and implementation of programs to heighten energy awareness, increase energy efficiency and improve indoor and outdoor air quality.
Energy and Air Quality Advisory Committee members serve three-year terms without compensation, but are eligible for reimbursement for travel and dependent care for meetings attended. Meetings are held in the evening on the first Wednesday of each month in Rockville.
Applicants of diverse backgrounds, professions, gender, geography, disability and ethnicity are encouraged to apply. An application, consisting of a brief cover letter and resume, should be sent by mail to County Executive Isiah Leggett, 101 Monroe Street, 2nd Floor, Rockville, MD 20850, or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Home and employment addresses, as well as contact phone numbers and email addresses should be included. If appropriate, applicants should indicate the position for which they are applying. The deadline for application is August 7, 2013.
Members of County boards, committees and commissions may not serve on more than one such group at a time. Leggett’s appointments are subject to confirmation by the County Council. Applications of those selected for appointment are made public as part of the confirmation process.
