Today I am going to focus this article on one single survey comment:
We had 5000 brochures printed for the exhibition but it was a waste of resources.
In case you didn’t know, NCECA has always offered up empty tables for any venue or organization that wishes to leave free brochures about their programs, events, etc. For the past 3 years at least, the NCECA board & staff have been discussing that practice and whether it continues to be appropriate. At the end of the conference, I would suspect that about 80% of what is brought and placed on that table is thrown out.
As an organization that tries to embrace and demonstrate green practices, this past year, I have been investigating and developing a digital option that would take the place of the platforms of paper paraphernalia. As we head into planning for our 51st meeting, the year that leads our conference into the future, do NCECA members still want tables full of brochures and postcards? I’d truly love to hear some thoughts and opinions. Please comment below or discuss in the NCECA Facebook Group
