[greenyes] National Recycling Coalition Congress Coming to Minneapolis

**Event Announcement - Calendar Advisory**

24th Annual National Recycling Congress & Expo
August 28-31, 2005 ~ Minneapolis, MN

More than 1,000 recycling professionals from around
the nation will gather in Minneapolis on August 28-31,
2005 for the National Recycling Coalition's 24th
Annual Congress & Expo. The Congress will feature
more than 30 educational sessions, more than 100
exhibitors, several exciting networking events, tours,
and more. The theme is "Heartland of Recycling."

You can help Minnesota host this premiere national
recycling conference in several ways:

1) Include the event in the calendar listings in your
newsletter, website, etc.

2) Join the Recycling Association of Minnesota's
(RAM) "Host Committee" and its subcommittees to
work on everything from tours and social events to
publicity and onsite recycling. For information on how
you can get involved, contact Paul Gardner, Executive
Director, Recycling Association of Minnesota, at 651-
641-4560 or RAMRecycle@no.address

3) Submit a proposal to speak at the Congress. NRC has
posted its "Call for Papers" on its website at

challenging budget and political environments.
