RA Seeking New Board of Directors for 2020-2021

In 2020, we will be losing three board members from the leadership team, and are currently seeking additional board members to fill their gap, and continue to grow the size of our board.

President Brion Hurley will be leaving the state of Oregon after 7 years and 4 years as President, and will not be seeking re-election at our annual meeting on September 29, 2020.

Vice President Rhett Lawrence will also be stepping down after 16 years, one of the longest tenured members in our 33-year history! He has held numerous leadership positions in the organization and will be greatly missed!

We will be selecting a new board President and Vice President from our current board, and will announce them at our annual meeting.

Finally, we are in need of a Treasurer to replace Holly Hummel, who has been our Treasurer for the past 6 years, and has retired and is spending more time outside of Oregon. She will be stepping down at the end of next year, but we want to find someone this year to help with the transition.

In summary, we are looking for the following:

  • Board Member (Treasurer)
  • Board Member (At-Large)
  • Board Member (At-Large)
  • Board Member (At-Large)

There is no experience required for joining the board, just a passion for our mission and a few hours a month available to participate in board and committee meetings.

Recycling Advocates is committed to advocating for waste equity and environmental justice. In order to help with this effort, we are seeking to increase diversity within our board of directors. If you are a member of the BIPOC community, we strongly encourage you to apply, as we will leave our application open through the end of 2020.

You might have a few questions about our board of directors positions, so we created a document for your review with a FAQ that explains more about the positions.
