Why do you want to serve on the SPC Executive Committee?

When considering the many challenges facing current and future generations of this world in relation to material waste and sustainability, the task at hand can seem overwhelming. However, I have attended 4 SPC conferences and continue to be inspired by your coalition’s work in proactively seeking solutions and creating an open source environment for people to learn and participate in. I would like to offer my 23 years of packaging experience to the SPC executive committee in an effort to help move your vision forward while continuing to enhance my learning of the problem at hand and, if possible, be a small part of larger solutions.
