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.

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.

The Environment and Energy Conservation Commission — often abbreviated E2C2 — advises the County Board on a wide range of energy and environmental matters, from climate change to natural resource management. Several openings are expected in the next few months and we invite you to apply online.

Diverse voices are needed!  E2C2 is looking for applicants from various professional backgrounds, age ranges, ethnicities, geographic locations in Arlington, and all  walks of life to represent Arlington. A strong interest or background in environmental justice issues would be helpful.

Are you interested in energy, environment and climate change-related issues? 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.

Thank you again to all the Commission and volunteers that continue to help shape Arlington, especially during the weird times we are living through.
