The Tri-Party Agreement agencies (U.S. Department of Energy, Environmental Protection Agency and Washington State Department of Ecology) are seeking applicants for both primary and alternate public-at-large positions for the Hanford Advisory Board.
What is the Hanford Advisory Board (HAB)?
The primary mission of the board is to provide informed recommendations and advice to the Tri-Party agencies on major policy issues related to the cleanup of the Hanford site.
What does it mean to be a HAB member?
Board members will be expected to spend a significant amount of time and effort on board activities. The board is scheduled to meet for two full days, five or six times each year. In addition, the board’s two technical standing committees meet approximately once each month for a half to full day. Although optional, members are encouraged to participate in committee work. The majority of meetings will be held in the Tri-Cities area during weekday business hours. The balance of the meetings will be held in other parts of Washington, Oregon and Idaho. Review of written materials, conference calls, orientation sessions, and tours may add to this commitment.
For members who live outside of the Tri-Cities area, travel, meal and lodging expenses are reimbursed by the Department of Energy. Lost work time and other expenses are not covered. Documented manager approval is required.
What is the public-at-large seat?
This advertisement is to fill primary and alternate positions. Public-at-large members must express a general interest in Hanford cleanup issues, contribute to board diversity, work with divergent viewpoints, and have the ability to attend various daytime meetings. Candidates who are not currently represented by a HAB stakeholder organization and are not currently employed by DOE or a DOE contractor will be considered.
How do I apply?
Email resumes to JoLynn Garcia at email@example.com and request an application. Your resume and application must be received no later than February 6, 2020.
Email your press release and a photo to Austin Regimbal, Marketing & Communications Director. Press releases are posted in their entirety. This is a free benefit for members of the Tri-City Regional Chamber.
