From WMATA:

Metro’s Riders’ Advisory Council is looking for riders to fill nine available positions on the volunteer council. Positions are available for residents in the District of Columbia (2), Montgomery County (3), Prince George’s County (1) and Fairfax County (2). There is also one at-large position available to a resident of any jurisdiction served by Metro.

The 21-member council is made up of six individuals each from Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia, two at-large members and the Chairman of Metro’s Accessibility Advisory Committee. The Council advises the agency’s Board of Directors on issues affecting Metrobus, Metrorail and MetroAccess service. It was created in December 2005 to improve communications with riders.

Individuals on the Riders’ Advisory Council represent a cross-section of Metro’s riders from across the region. The Council includes people with different riding patterns, people who use Metrobus, Metrorail and MetroAccess, transit-dependent people, people with disabilities, people who travel both short and long distances.

Persons interested in applying should complete the online form or complete and mail an application.

Applications are also available at:

Metro sales offices: Metro Center, Anacostia, Pentagon Transit Center, Metro headquarters.
Montgomery County TRiPS stores: Friendship Heights, Silver Spring.
Fairfax County Connector Stores: Franconia-Springfield Metro station, Herndon Monroe Park & Ride, Reston Town Center Transit Station, Tysons West Park Transit Station.

Applications must be received by 5:00 p.m. Friday, October 12. Applicants must be regular riders of Metrobus, Metrorail and/or MetroAccess.

Metro employees, contractors or elected officials are not eligible to apply. All positions are unpaid.

For many remote workers, a messy home is distracting.

You’re getting pulled into meetings, and your unread emails keep ticking up. But you can’t focus because pet hair tumbleweeds keep floating across the floor, your desk has a fine layer of dust and you keep your video off in meetings so no one sees the chaos behind you.

It’s no secret a dirty home is distracting and even adds stress to your life. And who has the energy to clean after work? That’s why it’s smart to enlist the help of professionals, like Well-Paid Maids.
