The Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission (WSSC) is seeking applicants for two expiring terms on its Board of Ethics (Board). The Board is comprised of three regular members and an alternate member. The expiring terms are: 1) one regular Board member, to be nominated by the WSSC Commissioners from Prince George’s County; and 2) one alternate Board member, to be nominated by the WSSC Commissioners from either Montgomery County or Prince George’s County.

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.

Hocevar Building, 14501 Sweitzer Lane, Laurel, Maryland 20707, but that date is subject to change. Due to COVID-19, Board members currently can attend the meeting virtually. Each Board member receives a $400 stipend for each regular monthly meeting attended.
