Air and Climate Public Advisory Committee

The Air and Climate Public Advisory Committee (ACPAC) advises on air quality, climate and energy issues to policy committees of the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments (COG). ACPAC advises the Metropolitan Washington Air Quality Committee (MWAQC) on air quality planning and the Climate, Energy, and Environment Policy Committee (CEEPC) on climate and energy issues and initiatives. ACPAC, formerly known as the Air Quality Public Advisory Committee or AQPAC was established in 1993.

ACPAC provides a meaningful opportunity to provide input to local elected officials on environmental policy issues, share your knowledge and expertise, learn and stay informed of local and regional progress. ACPAC's members represent diverse community interests and opinions. Members represent communities across the Metropolitan Washington region and have various backgrounds including business/industry, education/scientific, environmental/health and civic organizations. Please read the ACPAC bylaws and meeting procedures for more information. 

Though voting members are chosen by MWAQC, ACPAC meetings are open to any interested member of the public. ACPAC meets the third Monday of the month from 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm at the COG offices, 777 North Capitol St., NE, Washington, D.C. The COG offices are located 1 ½ blocks from the Union Station Metro Red Line, and underground parking is available from First Street.
