If you are looking for a green meeting venue...look no further. The International Association of Conference Centers recently developed a Code of Sustainability for its members and the adoption rate has been outstanding.
"IACC’s Code of Sustainability shines a bright spotlight on the path that already more than a third of its members have followed to affirm their compliance with more sustainable, environmentally responsible industry policies and practices. " reports Lois Berg, Chair, IACC's Code of Sustainability Committee.
I am listing them all here in recognition of such a important effort and as a resource for you!
