Meeting Items

Reminder

  • Everyone with an EEC key, let us know you have one by updating the page: List of EEC Keys

Projects

We need to decide on a big project around campus to get us noticed. Some ideas that were thought up were:

  • eSwap where we would have a table and people can bring electronics to be recycled.
  • CFL (Compact Fluorescent Light) trade-in table
  • Revamp recycling on campus to make it more appealing/inviting; ESW wants to work on this with us
  • Do something such as a recycle-a-thon; perhaps coordinating it with American Recycle Day ( http://americarecyclesday.org/About_ARD/about_ard.html )
  • We could also work on ensuring that all the lights on campus are using CFLs
  • Put electric hand dryers to replace paper towels in the bathrooms on campus

Public Relations Officer

Ecologic is going to need an aggressive public relations campaign to get noticed by the campus (in addition to the projects we'll decide on). Elly is our Public Relations Officer right now, and since she'll be be putting a lot of time into the Terra Cafe, she's agreed to step aside if someone wants to take on that role. Anyone who may be interested should let us know.

EEC

In the near future we need to clean up the EEC and get open hours scheduled.

Wiki

It would be good to get the wiki to become the central location for all things Ecologic.

Upcoming Events

There is an environmentally focused career fair at Pace University on October 4th: http://www.environmentalconsortium.org/taskforces/student/student_events.htm

Upcoming Meetings

Later this week Frank will be sending out a survey as to when the best time for meetings is. Also discussed was whether we want weekly or biweekly meetings or perhaps one day one week and then a different day the next.

Miscellaneous TODO
