EXTENDED: Election 2021 – Nominate Yourself To Serve On The NCRA Board! 


NCRA has been a Recycling and Zero Waste trailblazer since it 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!

Six board positions will be open this January. Three incumbents are running again. It’s a two-year working post. Attendance at all or most of our 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
      • Tour facilities and talk business with operators
      • Engage regional and national industry leaders
      • Work on behalf of colleagues who need a boost
      • Tackle issues that can’t be ignored
      • 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 Wednesday, November 24 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 Monday, November 29 and ends Monday, December 13 at 11:59pm.

If your NCRA membership has expired or will soon, please log-in to renew ASAP! This ensures you will continue to receive the NCRA News and discounts on NCRA events. Your membership helps support NCRA’s advocacy and education efforts throughout the year. Because we did not receive the usual membership renewals around RU this year, NCRA’s membership and funds have been diminished.
