Draft Meeting Agenda
Be at the heart of a thought-leading recycling organization! NCRA has been a leader in zero waste thinking for almost 40 years and is still leading and inspiring innovation in our industry. You can help develop the cutting edge of recycling, while getting to know many of your regional recycling colleagues, by serving on the Board of Directors.
Five (5) Board positions will be open in January. It’s a two-year working post. Attendance at nearly all ten meetings a year is important, as is working between meetings on at least one committee. Meetings move around the greater Bay Area. Phone participation is possible at some locations, but not all, and may be especially difficult at tour sites. Directors discuss policy issues, hear debates, and influence regional and national recycling thinking. They track and comment on legislation; listen to leaders in the regional industry; work on behalf of colleagues who need a boost; tackle issues that can’t be ignored; tour facilities; and talk business with operators. Benefits include free entrance to the annual Recycling Update.
Notify NCRA staff by NOVEMBER 17, 2017 that you want to run. To run, tell us you’re a candidate, and then submit a campaign statement of up to 200 words. Say who you are and why you’d like to serve. Please include your LinkedIn profile link. PLEASE read last years statements.
Help build your industry! Have fun with your colleagues! Get your statement in!
