Clean and Green Committee Gets a New Name and New Status

newsletter4 2Based on a vote by the membership of the Association in the most recent elections, the Clean and Green Committee will be known as the Sustainability-Oriented and Environmentally Responsible Practices Committee beginning with this Winter’s meeting.  Perhaps more important is the elevation of this committee to “Standing Committee” status that ensures that sustainability is now viewed as critical to the corrections mission as education, security and health care.  If you are going to be at the conference be sure and plan on coming by the committee meeting on Saturday, January 21 at 1:30 in room 302B of the convention center and help us celebrate.  Thanks to our contributors for making this reception possible:
