Be A Part of the Conversation - Serve on the Workgroup

We are looking for people to serve on the Thurston Climate Advisory Workgroup. The Workgroup will act as a community stakeholder committee to support the implementation of the Thurston Climate Mitigation Plan. This plan was a joint effort of Thurston County and the cities of Lacey, Olympia, and Tumwater to create greenhouse gas emissions reduction goals by 2030 and 2050.

Who can get involved?

Anyone is welcome to apply. The workgroup welcomes members with diverse backgrounds who are interested in but have little to no experience in climate issues. The workgroup currently has 2 slots open for frontline community members. 

Frontline communities are those that are disproportionately impacted by the effects of climate change. Frontline communities include:

  • BIPOC
  • People of Low-Income
  • People with Disabilities

Membership

Duties: Discuss and provide recommendations on the annual work program, annual report, and other proposals that the Climate Action Steering Committee are reviewing

Meetings: Up to six, two-hour meetings annually which will be held virtually or in-person in Olympia at TRPC. Meeting times and dates will be chosen after recruitment ends. Meetings may occur on Monday evenings.

Terms: Three (3) years with the option to reapply (youth can serve shorter terms)

Compensation: Option to receive $50/meeting unless you are being paid by your employer to attend meetings 

Application

Apply online or contact climate@trpc.org or (360) 956-7575 for translations, paper copies, or questions. The positions will remain open until filled.
