Board of Directors Election 2020
NOMINATE YOURSELF TO SERVE ON THE NCRA BOARD!
NCRA has been a Recycling and Zero Waste trailblazer since it’s inception in 1978 and we are still out front. You can help develop the cutting edge by applying to serve on the 11-person Board of Directors!
Five board positions will be open this January. We don’t know yet how many incumbents will be running. It’s a two-year working post. Attendance at nearly all ten meetings a year is required, as is between-meetings work on at least one standing committee as well as one Recycling Update committee. Currently we meet via Zoom on the third Thursday of the month. (Previous to the COVID-19 pandemic, meetings moved around the greater Bay Area – sometimes in conjunction with tours. Phone participation was possible at many locations.)
Directors discuss issues, hold debates and influence regional and national recycling strategy, such as:
- Track and comment on legislation
- Listen to regional industry leaders
- Work on behalf of colleagues who need a boost
- Tackle issues that can’t be ignored
- Tour facilities and talk business with operators
- Hold events and webinars on important topics
Benefits include helping NCRA protect and rejuvenate the environment and promote a waste free economy, as well as free entrance to all NCRA events. Looks good on your resume too!
To nominate yourself, submit a campaign statement of 210 words or less via our Contact page, on or before Monday, November 16 at 11:59pm. Introduce yourself, note how long you have been a NCRA member, what committees you are on and tell members why they should consider voting for you. Be sure to read the previous statements beforehand.
The Election begins Tuesday, November 23 and ends Monday, December 6 at 11:59pm.
