Great Lakes Regional Pollution Prevention Roundtable
Promoting Pollution Prevention Through Information Exchange
   

Discussion Groups

Overview of the Groups

On February 22-23, 2006, the Great Lakes Regional Pollution Prevention Roundtable (GLRPPR) held a strategic planning meeting open to all members at the U.S. EPA Region 5 offices in Chicago, IL. See the strategic planning meeting recap for more details. One of the outcomes of that meeting was the formation of four groups for the purpose of networking and facilitation of communication and cooperation among regional organizations. These "discussion groups" were formed around four topics identified by meeting attendees as subjects of special interest for the region (mercury, energy efficiency, water, and lean and green manufacturing).

GLRPPR administrative staff will assist these groups as needed with the arrangement of conference calls, and facilitation of communication among members of the group and among the groups and the general GLRPPR membership via the maintenance of these web pages and posting or promotion of material via the GLRPPR web site and newsletter. The discussion groups are independent entities/efforts of GLRPPR members—the GLRPPR administrative staff and Steering Committee do not manage these groups or dictate the pollution prevention topics for which GLRPPR members may form groups.

The group pages provide descriptions of these groups and contact information, as well as conference call information and shared documents of interest where appropriate.

If you are interested in joining any of these groups, please contact the individual "lead" for that group, identified on the group's page.

If you are interested in forming an additional discussion group on a topic of regional significance, please contact Bob Iverson, GLRPPR Executive Director, at biverson@istc.illinois.edu.

GLRPPR is a member of the Pollution Prevention Resource Exchange, a national network of regional information centers: NEWMOA (Northeast), WRRC (Southeast), GLRPPR (Great Lakes), ZeroWasteNet (Southwest), P2RIC (Plains), Peaks to Prairies (Mountain), WSPPN (Pacific Southwest), PPRC (Northwest).
