Rethink Energy: Thank You Commissioners — New Applicants Welcome

This regularly-scheduled sponsored column is written by the Arlington Initiative to Rethink Energy team (AIRE). This county program helps you make smart energy decisions that save you money and leaves a lighter footprint on the environment.

Civic engagement is at the heart of Arlington.

Arlington County government relies on the hard work of its many civic-minded volunteers. More than 50 County Commissions and Advisory groups advise the County Board on decisions that affect and benefit our community.

We don’t say it enough, but we really mean it — THANK YOU to each commissioner for your service, especially to those with whom we work closely on the Environment and Energy Conservation Commission.

The Environment and Energy Conservation Commission — often abbreviated E2C2 — advises the County Board on energy and environmental matters. Openings on the Commission occur annually and we welcome you to take attend a meeting and apply online.

Diverse voices from various professional backgrounds, walks of life and neighborhoods are all needed to represent Arlington. Are you interested in energy and the environment Are you looking for a way to get involved in your community? This may be just the opportunity you are looking for.

There are several other commissions with openings, too. Visit the County’s Commission page to learn more and apply.
