Green Meetings

It's easy being green in Seattle! As always, ASCP is committed to environmental stewardship and implementing sustainable practices as an integral part of our event. Our goals are to:

  • Minimize or eliminate any real or potential negative environmental impact
  • Educate our staff, exhibitors, local hosts, and guests about responsible green choices they can make for their events and their own lives, both personal and professional
  • Demonstrate the economic and community benefits of greening

Like many organizations, ASCP is working to deliver more environmentally responsible meetings. We hope the incremental eco-improvements we are making will offer ideas and inspire you as well.

During the planning and execution of our Annual Meeting, we will:

  • Reduce paper mailings through the use of electronic communication for registration, confirmations, and surveys
  • No longer provide printers at the Internet Station
  • Minimize the amount of signage waste through the use of plasma screens and re-usable signage wherever possible
  • Provide conference materials via electronic media

Please join us in these efforts and take steps to go green and make a difference.
