Plus I just got an email from NCECA regarding NCECA going GREEN!!!
They are looking for feedback from members addressing different ways to have a more sustainable practice in the studio, the classroom or at home. Working in collaboration with Ceramics Monthly and the Archie Bray Foundation the future is looking to be more green for our community. If you know of individuals who are dedicated and experienced in the issues surrounding going green please forward their information to Kate Vorhaus, NCECA Projects Manager in our Erie, Colorado office; email@example.com
They are also looking for a student to join their “Green Task Force”, So if you know of someone that fits the bill please send their name and contact information to NCECA Student Director-at-Large, Jessica Orlowski; firstname.lastname@example.org
Keep an eye out for NCECA webpages and blogs on the subject, but in the meantime get involved, because as with all things green, we all have to get involved and do our part. So start getting all your ideas together, talk with others in your community and get in contact with any member of the newly formed NCECA Green Task Force:
Robert Harrison, NCECA Past President; email@example.com
Joe Molinaro, NCECA Programs Director; joe.Molinaro@eku.edu
