Regional Chapter of the US Composting Concil (USCC) - Formation

The NERC Board has voted to initiate a Regional USCC Chapter. It is seeking to establish an eight-state Chapter of the US Composting Council (USCC): Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island. Three states in the NERC region are not included in this launch as they either already have USCC Chapters or strong state-based organics organizations. The goal of the Chapter will be to support and expand commercial composting and organics management capacity in the Northeast. A fact sheet is available.

NERC’s role will be to help in the formation of the Chapter, including identifying individuals to form a Board of Directors, assisting in the development of legal documents, and providing general staffing support to the Chapter Board in the stages leading to membership solicitation.
