Advisory Council 

A 9-member, volunteer Advisory Council meets monthly to advise and consult with the Board and the Director in carrying out the purposes of the Washington Clean Air Act and the agency's mission. Council members have experience in various fields including agriculture, industry, health, science and fire protection. Interested applicants apply for 4-year positions which are appointed by the Board of Directors.

The Advisory Council typically meets the fourth Thursday of the month, except November and December, from  8-9 a.m. Meetings are currently being held virtually. Advisory Council meetings are open to the public. Meeting agendas, including information to access the meetings remotely, are posted on the agency's website, under "Notices & Hearings" at least one week prior to each meeting.
