Health Advisory Councils - Air Quality
Air Quality Advisory Council Vacancies: None at this time
Air Quality Advisory Council Elections are held once a year in the fall or winter. If you are interested in participating in the council you are encouraged to attend our monthly meetings.
The all-volunteer Advisory Council meets once a month on Tuesday nights and advises the Missoula City-County Air Pollution Control Board on a wide range of air quality topics including industrial sources, outdoor burning, road dust, transportation, and woodstoves. Not all members need to have technical expertise, so individuals with either technical or non-technical backgrounds are encouraged to apply. The minimum qualifications are that you live in Missoula County, you have a strong interest in air quality, and you are willing to attend meetings.
The Advisory Council is composed of nine members, up to four alternates, and one non-voting, post-secondary student associate. After reviewing applications (and conducting interviews for members and alternates), the Advisory Council makes membership recommendations to the Chair of the Air Pollution Control Board. The Control Board Chair subsequently appoints members and alternates to three-year, renewable terms and the student associate to a one-year, renewable term. For more information about the recommendation process, read the procedure for recommending members or alternates and the procedure for recommending the student associate.
