Are you a passionate and effective storyteller who wants to share your innovation or story of change to hundreds of Oregonians in the sustainability industry?  Do you have a story that will motivate others that work or volunteer in this field? What challenges lie ahead for all of us, or how have you adapted to 2020’s challenges? How have you advanced equity and inclusion in this sector?  The Association of Oregon Recyclers wants to hear from you!
