The AMRC conference

I’ll be spending most of the rest of this week attending the annual conference and AGM of the Association of Municipal Recycling Coordinators (AMRC) in Hockley Valley, Ontario. When I can get my laptop online I’ll post a report here, and will certainly share some impressions after the event concludes on Friday.
I look forward to today’s workshop on Management Issues and Finances, which features a presentation by our regulations writer Rosalind Cooper as part of “Treating Waste Management as a Utility.”
Most conference sessions are scheduled for Thursday, when I moderate one session, and the day concludes with a speech from the environment minister at the gala dinner. Let’s hope she has more interesting and worthwhile things to say than her predecessor, whose staff-written speeches were superficial and repetitive. I’ll let you know if she announces anything worth reporting.
