RCBC Annual Zero Waste Conference

The Developmental Disabilities Association partook in this years 2009 Recycling Council of BC’s Zero Waste Conference, which was held May 27-29, at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler Resort in Whistler, BC. The theme for the conference was ECOnomics: The Green Economy Summit. Members of the Association attending the conference included our president, John Neilson, along with Deanna Barlow, Jason Smith, and Rob Fourchalk. We were very pleased to be this years recipient of a Mobi Award for Non-Profit Achievement in Excellence and Leadership in Environmental Stewardship.

The overall conference was a fun an educational experience. In addition to receiving an award, we also had the opportunity to meet a lot of other people who shared similar interests in environmental stewardship. Some of the people we met up with include:

The opportunity to meet with and discuss environmental initiatives with other like-minded individuals was a fantastic opportunity for our representatives from the Developmental Disabilities Association. The entire conference was a great experience and we’re looking forward to attending next year’s conference as well. Thank you everybody for making this an enjoyable conference!
