CALL FOR PRESENTATIONS
National Recycling Coalition's
20th Annual Congress & Exposition
September 30 - October 3, Seattle, WA

NRC's Annual Congress & Exposition is the best place to exchange
new ideas about recycling, source reduction and composting. The Congress
offers the most comprehensive, informative, educational program of any
recycling conference across the country. Every year, the NRC Congress is
the most informative gathering of its kind.
Benefits of Presenting to the NRC Audience
Appearing before the decision makers in the recycling industry is an
honor. Attending a NRC Congress as a speaker or an attendee has many
long-term benefits. You have an opportunity to set yourself apart and
enhance your credibility and stature among industry professionals,
refresh and increase your personal knowledge and challenge yourself and
your colleagues through lively debates and interactive sessions.
There is no fee to submit a presentation. Persons selected to appear
before the NRC audience will be expected to pay registration fees to
attend the entire Congress. A speaker discount of $100 off the full
registration fee may be extended if the presenter will be attending the
entire Congress & Exposition or you can attend the day you present
for free. All related expenses for travel and hotel accommodations will
be at the speaker's expense.

Program Task Force. Applications will be evaluated with the following
criteria in mind: overall quality and focus; organization of ideas;
relevance to NRC's recycling agenda; and our members'
informational/educational needs; quality of research; presentation
