Northwest Tennessee Dyersburg Chapter 2.2013 Mtg Memo (pdf)

Date: Friday, February 15, 2013

Time: 11:30 A.M. - Lupo’s Restaurant - Dyersburg

Speaker: Michelle Newell

Topic: Clarksville-Montgomery County kicked off a local Green Certification Program approximately two years ago.

Clarksville-Montgomery County kicked off a local Green Certification Program approximately two years ago. The program was developed to help businesses, government and other organizations understand the impacts they have on their local environment and what they can do to reduce that impact. Although the focus of the program was not to save money, it has been a consistent result for those who participate in the program. In addition, partnerships have formed amongst businesses to use one another’s waste products rather than sending them to the landfill.

We got the New Year off to a good start at our January meeting with our roundtable discussions. It’s always good to get together and share ideas. We can learn a lot from networking with each other. We need to be nominating new officers for next year so please send your suggestions to Jerry Williams. Our next meeting has been changed to Friday, February 15, due to the availability of our speaker.

Michelle Newell has served as the Clarksville-Montgomery County Green Certification Program Manager for two years. She is a self-professed conservation nerd and has been a proponent for maintaining a clean and safe environment since she was a child. Helping organizations realize and reduce their waste is the greatest motivator in her work. Her background and education is in corporate communications.

Please mark your calendars and join us for the meeting next Friday. We need your input and suggestions.

We look forward to seeing you there.

And Remember:
If you believe that you can..... or believe that you can't..... You’re RIGHT on both accounts. (Henry Ford)
