[av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=”]
Thank you for your interest in attending the National Recycling Coalition (NRC) Sustainable Materials Management Summit (SMM Summit) taking place May 12 -13, 2015 at the University of Maryland. NRC has reserved one scholarship for each of the NRC-affiliated state Recycling Organizations (ROs) to participate as Delegates to the Summit.

Participation by as many of NRC’s 22 affiliate organizations  as possible is critical in making sure that NRC is representing your interests in this national dialog among local, state and federal government, business and industry and non-profits organization supporting reduction, reuse, recycling, composting, design for recycling, and more.

Completing this application signifies that you are the one delegate to the event representing your organization. ROs can also nominate one or more Observers from your organization in a separate application to be considered, but not guaranteed, due to limited space and a desire for balanced representation.*

The deadline for submitting your application for participation in the SMM Summit is Friday, February 27, 2015.  Applications received after that date may not be guaranteed a seat as a Delegate.

ROs receive the following benefits for one delegate:
• Waived registration ($235 value)
• Hotel accommodations for one night, double occupancy or ½ costs toward single occupancy ($179 value)
• Travel assistance up to $500
