[greenyes] NRC Elections Candidates Survey


California organizers have their hands full with hosting the NRC in SF this year, and helping to organize Zero Waste events for GRC and GRRN on 8/26-28. So, CA has NOT surveyed the candidates and I don't believe will be doing so. If anyone would like to do so, I'm sure we could post the responses on the CRRA/GRC website, as soon as the responses were compiled.

If someone wants to take this on, the steps to follow are:
* Compile list of questions - solicit input from ROs, NRC Technical Councils and environmental groups, and use previous years' questions as a base (although issues and priorities change thru the years)
* Get list of emails of candidates from NRC staff
* Send questions to candidates, with a deadline of at least 1 week later for them to respond, in order to be included in the webposting.
* Compile the answers received by deadline.
* Send those to CRRA/GRC to post. I'd be happy to be a contact person to work out the details on that.
* Individuals could then use the survey results to make their final selections, and groups (e.g., ROs) could use those results to recommend "slates" to their members and friends.
Anyone interested in doing this?

So plan on voting, whoever you choose, but for god's sake vote!

For those of you who count yourselves members of the National Recycling Coalition you have an added responsibility, to shape the future of this org through their board elections.
Remember, it does not matter who you vote for, it is only important that you participate in the process.
To this end, I am hoping someone on the list has done their homework regarding the NRC slate, unlike myself, and has compiled a q&a of the candidates. I know folks out in Cali have done this in the past, but cannot find anything on the web.
If you have seen anything, or know a group who has or will question the candidates, please post to the list, as the more we know about the candidates, the better we can serve the NRC by electing the most representative leaders possible.
Thanks for the help.....and happy voting!
