ACR Board Meeting Highlights July 2017

At the most recent meeting on 7/17, the Board discussed the Tax Free Shopping Day that Austin Creative Reuse will host at the Center on August 5 (the statewide tax free days are August 11-13), and other upcoming events, including return of the Art of Reuse Workshops on September 20 and hosting an activity at the Thinkery 21: Come and Make It on August 24.


Isadora McKeon has stepped into her new role as ACR’s Executive Director. One of her first official acts with ACR was to appear on the segment  ‘We Are Austin’ on Wednesday, July 19 at 8:20 am on the local Austin CBS affiliate. In the brief segment, Isadora explains how to make a journal out of reused materials.


Isadora identified a few ways to tweak the metrics for the Center to improve our operations. The board conducted a post mortem of our recent Fabric Sale and have identified ways to make the next one better and more convenient for our customers. Isadora met with personnel of Austin Resource Recovery, and ARR has agreed to do event cross-marketing.
