I sincerely hope everyone is enjoying their summer activities with family and friends. It has been a very active time of the year for the NRC, its Board of Directors, Staff and Committees. A very successful regional recycling market development workshop in Albuquerque kicked off the summer. Thank you to the New Mexico Recycling Coalition and the members of the NRC Markets Council for all of their efforts on making that event so meaningful for the attendees and the region.
The NRC policy committee, through the container deposit working group, brought forth a policy on container deposit legislation which was adopted by the NRC board. Thank you to all of the NRC board members and members of state recycling organizations who participated on the policy working group and those that submitted substantive comments about the policy to the NRC board. Your input on both the policy and the policy development process are invaluable to the NRC.
Committees are finalizing details for the numerous NRC activities that will take place at the Resource Recycling Conference at the Sheraton in New Orleans, LA on August 26-28, 2019. Please join us for the NRC annual membership meeting on the morning of August 26th where we kick off the elections for the NRC Board. Let us know if you or any NRC member that you know is interested in running for the NRC Board of Directors. Later that day, the NRC will be conducting a condensed version of its market development workshop which is free to all conference attendees. The joint NRC/SERDC welcome reception will take place later that evening at the Gravier Street Social. You can register for the reception through the link on the conference registration page or on the NRC website. The NRC will also be presenting its annual awards and the Murray J. Fox Scholarships on the morning of Thursday, August 28th. The NRC board will be conducting a retreat on the afternoon of August 28th and morning of August 29th. The participation in the retreat is open to all NRC affiliate and direct members.
Thank you for your support of the National Recycling Coalition and enjoy the rest of your summer!
