2018 Summit Agenda

The Summit schedule is complete with round tables and workshops, subject-matter experts, a business partner showcase, site tours, recycling awards, silent auction, and fun evening networking events.

Round Tables

Unless otherwise noted, concurrent sessions during this year's Summit will take the form of a round table. CAFR uses round tables as a method to convene stakeholders on regional and topical issues for the purpose of advancing infrastructure, end markets, and state and local policies in waste reduction, recovery and diversion.

Round tables are the first step in exploring the establishment of working groups that take on tangible, actionable and measurable projects over the course of a 12-month period. Each round table is led by a facilitator and the discussion centers around identifying two to three major obstacles in advancing infrastructure, end markets or policy to promote a circular economy and then choosing one task that can be accomplished in 12 months that will make a measureable impact.

This is a preliminary agenda; details are subject to change.
