The Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) requires vendors to join in a commitment to sustainability by agreeing to comply with the following guidelines required under sustainability standards for meetings and events. Exhibitors shall:
For the first time, UUA is allowing exhibitors to volunteer for review. The review process (outlined below) asks exhibitors to demonstrate their compliance with UUA’s sustainability policy. To volunteer for a booth review, or for any questions related to sustainable exhibiting, email Aaron Elliott at email@example.com.
Note: If 20% of the total exhibitors do not volunteer, the remainder will be selected at random for review.
By participating in our review process you will receive the following:
In the year of your successful review: a sign to display in-booth.
In the year following your successful review: a sign to display in-booth, promotion on plenary walk-in slides, acknowledgement in the program, web site, and social media, and a sign posted at the Green Booth onsite.
UUA’s independent sustainability partner, MeetGreen®, will contact any exhibitors volunteering or selected for review by email before the event to schedule a brief pre-event phone call to discuss exhibitor actions in support of the Sustainability Terms and Conditions (T&C) above. This will take less than 30 minutes.
MeetGreen® will visit booths being reviewed and observe and/or discuss anything not able to be confirmed during the pre-event interview. We’re happy to schedule this at a convenient time for exhibitors if they would like to ensure they are present.
A brief booth summary report will be sent to exhibitors participating in reviews via email post-event. This notice will identify any best practices and/or issue/s and suggest possible solutions.
Exhibitors with noted issues are welcome to return to GA the next year. In addition, exhibitors can contact MeetGreen® if they need help addressing a guideline. Upon returning to exhibit they will automatically be selected for review. If issues are persistent after the second review, the exhibitor will be unable to participate in future GAs unless corrective action is taken and evidence of the correction is provided.
*Twelve exhibitors went through the review process last year and 100% were found to have no issues associated with the Sustainability Terms and Conditions! Don’t forget to Meet Our Green Exhibitors from GA 2013!
To volunteer for review, or for any questions related to sustainable exhibiting, please contact Aaron Elliott at firstname.lastname@example.org.
