Austin-ites: Join the 15NTC Sustainability Committee!

Submitted by Eileigh on Tue, 10/14/2014 - 2:00pm

NTEN loves bringing the nonprofit technology community together, but we realize that our flagship event generates a tremendous amount of waste and CO2. As we’re all working to strengthen the nonprofit sector, it’s critical for us to be conscious of our social and environmental impact.   

This year – we need your help! While NTEN is taking steps to ensure that the conference experience within the Austin Convention Center is socially and environmentally conscious, there’s a lot more we can be doing to ensure that participants are informed of all green options within and outside of the Convention Center.

We are looking for new Sustainability Committee members, preferably those that are either based in Austin or are familiar with the Austin area, to help share their local knowledge to steward a green experience. Let us know by October 30 if you’re interested in joining the committee.
