National Recycling Coalition (NRC) Challenged During Current Economic Crisis

The following letter was sent to members of the National Recylcing Coalition recently:

Dear Leaders of the Recycling Organizations Council:

The National Recycling Coalition (NRC) is a long ‐ standing, effective, and credible organization. We are one among many non‐profit organizations who must respond to the challenges of the current economic environment. The global economic recession and its acute impact on the recycling community are posing unprecedented financial challenges for our organization. The Board of Directors has a fiduciary responsibility to the organization and its members to promote the financial health of NRC if it is to succeed in its mission. All of us on the Board take that responsibility seriously and are committed to a vibrant future for NRC.

Accordingly, the Board is exploring a number of strategic options that will ensure that NRC is preserved as a national, member‐based, multi‐sector, and financially viable organization, committed to its mission and directed by its guiding principles. Among the options we feel we must consider are more extensive program and event partnering, asset sharing arrangements, and the possibility of consolidation with another organization of similar mission and interests.

We will be acting expeditiously but prudently as we move forward over the coming weeks to consider and develop these alternatives. We ask your patience and seek your support in this endeavor.

As options take shape, we will keep you and the membership appropriately advised and will solicit your feedback. We will comply with all of our obligations to you for affirmation or approval of any recommendations or proposals that we d velop. On behalf of the NRC Board of Directors, David Refkin, President
