February 2014 Board Meeting

February 11, 2014 at 7pm
Directors Present: Katy, Cindy, Leslie, Kaci, Carole, Rebecca
Visitors Present: Simone Barnes and Toni Red

Call for event coordinators
The board is focusing their efforts on opening our retail and community space. Therefore, we need event coordinators for two upcoming events.

Austin Maker Faire is May 3rd and we’d love to participate with an easy reuse craft at a booth. The coordinator will need to organize a craft, recruit volunteers, and be at the event in May.

Earth Day is coming up in April and we always love participating. We need a coordinator to organize a craft, recruit volunteers, and be at the event in April.

If you’re interested, please email info@austincreativereuse.org to get more information.

Did you know we’re on Etsy and Ebay?
We sell reuse materials and supplies on our Etsy and Ebay accounts to help us raise capital for opening our creative reuse center and retail space. Shop online with us!

ReuseConex is coming to Austin!
We’re extremely excited that ReuseConex, the international reuse conference and expo, is coming to Austin in October. There’s currently a call out for speakers. Get more on the ReuseConex website.
