WAC members are special state employees under the Conflict of Interest Law (G.L. c. 268A) and there may be limitations or restrictions on membership if you or your employer does business with the MWRA or other state agencies. For example, public employees are restricted from participating in their public positions in matters in which they, their immediate family members, or a business with which they are affiliated has a financial interest. In some cases, the Conflict of Interest Law establishes a strict prohibition, while in other cases, the restriction may be cured through a disclosure and/or approval. Any specific conflict of interest will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. However, it is important to keep this in mind as you consider applying for membership.
