Dear NRC Members:
We are sending you this note, and the attached letter, in an effort to keep you informed of the activities of the NRC in these very challenging economic times. In February, the Board had written to the State recycling leadership and key stakeholders and informed them of the steps that the Board was undertaking in fulfillment of its fiduciary responsibilities. A copy of that letter is attached. The circumstances under which that letter was written have not changed. To bring you up to date, I would first like to emphasize that no decision has been made regarding the future of the organization, so statements to the contrary are inaccurate. Secondly, as we analyze the various options available to us, the Board has reached out to State recycling leaders for their valued advice. Finally, and to reiterate what is in the letter, on any issues involving merger and certain other major organizational options, it is the membership, through our by-laws, who is ultimately empowered to decide the future of the organization, and we are cognizant and respectful of that at all times during our deliberations.
In the meantime, we ask for your continued patience and understanding.
Sincerely, on behalf of the Board of Directors,
David Refkin, President
