The Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission (WSSC) is seeking applicants to fill one expired term on its Board of Ethics (Board). The Board is comprised of three regular members and an alternate member. The current opening is for one regular Board member, to be nominated by a WSSC Commissioner from either Montgomery or Prince George’s counties. Board members serve three-year terms or until a successor is appointed.
The Board administers the WSSC Code of Regulations, Code of Ethics (Code), issues advisory opinions, responds to requests for waivers of Code prohibitions, acts on complaints, and periodically reviews the adequacy of the Code. The qualifications for members of the Board of Ethics are professionalism, integrity, and competence. A background in workplace ethics is preferred.
The Board generally meets from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. on the second Thursday of each month at WSSC’s Richard G. Hocevar Building, 14501 Sweitzer Lane, Laurel, Maryland 20707, but that date is subject to change. Due to COVID-19, the Board is currently meeting virtually on the second Wednesday of each month at 1 p.m. until in-person public meetings are reauthorized. Each Board member receives a $200 stipend for each regular monthly meeting attended.
