CMRA Board of Directors meets.
Specifically focused on were potential changes in the California product procurement code that would add recycled C&D products into a preferred category and issues surrounding wood chips as wood fuel. Currently New Hampshire has placed a moratorium on the use of wood chips as a legislative committee examines whether they are a danger. The CMRA will participate in hearings on the issue.
Board members did hear that in the mail were instructions to members on how to contact their federal House and Senate members to promote support for bills that would close a loophole in the Surface Transportation Board's purview that allow unlicensed transfer stations to operate under a railroad exemption.
Also discussed was a new logo design presented by board member Phillip Nappi, Tennessee Waste. The board suggested changes and Nappi will go back to the artist with the suggestions, and she will provide more possible designs.
The board also voted to raise all dues levels by $20 for the upcoming dues renewal season. Most members will now pay $295 annually. The board decided that level was still less than most related trade associations, and that the CMRA was providing more value for that small amount of money.
Finally, a report was heard on the progress of the Awards Program.
