NRC Postpones Conference Until January

Alexandria, Va. -- The National Recycling Coalition (NRC) has decided to move its Annual Congress and Exposition to Jan. 13-16, 2002, in Seattle. The conference originally was scheduled to be held Sept. 30 -Oct. 30, 2001, and the NRC initially said it would hold the conference as planned. But in the past week, due to the emotional reactions and logistical problems resulting from the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, a number of moderators, speakers and exhibitors were unable or unwilling to participate at the scheduled date, according to the NRC board of directors.

All registrations and exhibitions will automatically be moved to the January dates without penalty. A new cancellation policy for people who have already registered but are unable to attend at the new dates is being developed and will be distributed in the next few days.
