UPDATE: WR3A Meetings in New Orleans

E-Scrap 2010 Conference, New Orleans

Wednesday, September 29, "Prince of Whales" Room
New Orleans Riverside Hilton

Meetings Agenda

3-4  General Meeting, All WR3A Members and Guests.  Open Discussion on California Compromise and other debated standards with academics, advocates, and industry professionals.  Our goal is to get a lot of opinion etc. out in the open, and to hold to a tight schedule at 4PM.  Since this part of the meeting overlaps with some concurrent sessions, it is not necessary to attend in order to participate in the California Compromise Business Meeting at 4PM.

  • Invited via Skype:   Technicians, lawyers and Recyclers from Burkina Faso, Mexico, Egypt, Malaysia, Indonesia, Peru.
4:    Business Meeting:   California Compromise.   WR3A, BAN, and others will attempt to put forth a proposal which all sides can support for CalRecycles to allow reuse of CRTs if it neither compromises double-redemption of ARF fees or illegal exports.  WR3A will present a proposal based on Basel Action Network / E-Stewards export-for-reuse standards as a compromise for a system which currently has zero legal reuse.
  • A copy of the proposal will be uploaded via Scribd to this blog during the weekend.

5:   WR3A Board Meeting:   Should WR3A continue to try to cooperate with purchase orders, or act as a business advocacy organization, letting our members find their own markets?   2009 proved it was very difficult to match supply and demand;  the changes in CRT glass markets increased demand for access to a limited number of buyers, and our attempts to get a larger buyer to become certified were frustrated when anti-export groups criticized the new buyer (based on distrust of that buyer's current suppliers).

This meeting is co-sponsored by Resource Recycling, publisher of E-Scrap News, and American Retroworks Inc.
