The U.S. Composting Council celebrated their 20th anniversary with a stellar conference in Austin, TX January 17 -20, 2012. With a change in command last fall, the conference was an excellent opportunity for the USCC to embark on a new era. Incoming USCC executive director Mike Virga, along with his staff, orchestrated a fantastic four-day event, including pre and post- conference activities. See the September ZWZ Blog post, USCC Prepares for New Era, for the announcement of Mike Virga joining the USCC.

The composting industry is a tight knit group and the conference was a time for colleagues from around the country (and world!) to catch-up. Productive dinners filled with laughter were abundant during the conference.

For a pictorial recap of the conference, visit the Ei FB album, 2012 USCC Conference - Austin, TX. From the pictures, it is evident composting industry professionals understand fun and laughter are effective vehicles for accomplishing our important work.
It was great to see everyone and Ei looks forward to the 2013 USCC conference in Orlando.
