Somerville Commission on Energy Use and Climate Change Seeks One Member
The City of Somerville Commission on Energy Use and Climate Change (CEUCC) seeks one new member, and all Somerville residents are invited to apply. Boards and commissions offer an opportunity for residents with a range of experience, skills, expertise, and perspectives to share their talents and insights with their community.
The CEUCC advises the City on climate change and energy policy issues and assists with related program design and outreach. In the past, for example, the Commission has advised on energy performance of City buildings, community choice aggregation of electricity, and residential solar. Upcoming topics will include the Somerville Climate Forward update; local, state, and federal policy; innovative sustainability practices; and climate equity.
Applicants should have a background in climate or environmental justice. Ideally, candidates will also have some combination of knowledge of climate policy at the state or municipal level, lived or professional experience with environmental justice communities, experience developing sustainable buildings and/or affordable housing, experience in climate/sustainability funding, and/or experience with community resiliency.
The new CEUCC member will serve the remainder of a term through December 10, 2024, with possible reappointment for a two-year term. The CEUCC typically meets on the second Tuesday of the month from 7 to 8:30 p.m. This is a volunteer position. CEUCC members are appointed by the Mayor and confirmed by the City Council.
Applications are due Friday, April 28. Interested candidates should submit a statement of interest and resume via email to email@example.com with the subject line “Commission Application” or by mail to: ATTN: Director, Office of Sustainability and Environment, 50 Evergreen Ave., Somerville, MA 02145.
