During the AIC Annual Meeting in Denver, Paul Himmelstein presented a proposal signed by a long list of AIC supporters to develop a Green Task Force that will assist members and the AIC in improving and implementing environmental sustainability actions.
Therefore, AIC is seeking up to seven members to serve on the newly created Green Task Force, and we would like one of these seven to be from the Emerging Leaders Network.
This task force is charged with investigating implementation of green practices for AIC itself and the conservation profession. It will report to the AIC Board regularly through the director of Committees and Task Forces and will submit its recommendations within two years.
The Green Task Force will communicate through email and conference calls and should consider including corresponding members who can provide additional expertise to assist in completing the charge. To be considered for service, please send a letter of interest to Cathy Hawks at firstname.lastname@example.org by August 1, 2008.
