No Summer Lull at ISRI’s Summer Board & Governance Meetings

Although summer is the time for R&R and vacations, the ISRI Board of Directors and other volunteer leaders were hard at work July 16-19 at our summer board and governance meetings in Washington, DC.

In addition to discussing current industry market, legislative, regulatory, and international trade trends, attendees addressed important association business including progress on ISRI’s strategic plan.

At its two meetings July 17 and July 19, the board approved measures to:

·         Change the procedures for adding, amending, or withdrawing scrap specifications, including an amendment to the original motion to send any proposed changes to all ISRI members.

         Amend ISRI’s policies on reimbursable expenses for speakers and panel members at ISRI’s annual convention and exposition.

         Elect Kevin Lamar of Dynamic Metal Services (Cleveland) and Edward Kangeter IV of CASS (Oakland, CA) to fill two open positions on the Audit Committee and David Borsuk of Sadoff Iron & Metal Co. (Fond du Lac, WI) to fill the director-at-large position Brian Henesey of Rocky Mountain Recycling (Commerce City, CO) vacated after his election as ISRI national secretary/treasurer in April.

         The appointment of Doug Kramer of Kramer Metals (Los Angeles) to the RIOS™ Board of Directors as the representative of ISRI Standing Committee and Council Chairmen

         Change the ISRI PAC policy, adding the words “members of” in the following sentence: “The Board of Directors of ISRI declares as its first goal that all members of ISRI’s Board of Directors’ and Chapter officers’ companies should, if possible, be ISRI PAC authorized – ideally with a full five (5) year authorization.”

         Rescind ISRI’s outdated Position on the Recycling of Automobiles Containing Unspent Air Bags.  ISRI Chair Mark Lewon has formed an Airbag Working Group to help develop an updated position.

         Accept the association’s financial statement and its investment portfolio statement for the five months from January through May 2016.

         Approve a new specification for Postconsumer TPO Plastic Automotive Bumper Covers.

In its initial meeting on July 17, the ISRI Board approved the consent agenda, covering the minutes of its April 2 and April 4 meetings as well as the April 7 election and officer installation meeting, all held in conjunction with ISRI2016 in Las Vegas. .

The ISRI Fall Board and Governance meetings are slated for November 3-5 in Salt Lake City. For more information, visit the ISRI website. Please note that you must be logged in as a member in order to access Board and Governance meeting materials.
