RU 2024 Call for Presentations, Speakers and Topics

Call for Presentations, Speakers and Topic Nominations
Applications close Friday October 20, 2023

NCRA is seeking speakers for the 2024 Recycling Update (RU) to share what is new and different in all aspects of waste reduction and Zero Waste. We especially invite speakers who have not yet presented at this dynamic, fast paced event. Join over 300 attendees – in-person and on-line, from local government recycling staff, policy makers, consultants, haulers and processors from across Northern California to hear about the newest and greatest ideas our field.
All speakers have ***10 minutes*** for their presentation and 2 minutes for questions. An advantage is that everyone in attendance will hear your ideas – no breakouts or tracks. We run a pretty tight ship, so it’s important that each speaker be well prepared, and stay within their allotted time.

Whatever topic you propose, your presentations should reflect NCRA’s commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. Please make a conscious effort to address these issues as you prepare your submissions, both in textual and graphic elements. In addition, the selection committee encourages proposals focused on SB 1383 implementation and Reuse & Repair.

Speakers receive free registration as well as one year of membership.  For additional information, please use the form to ask your questions.
