Task Force Charge

ELD Sustainable Practices Task Force is charged with investigating ways that ELD and ASEE as a whole might move forward toward more sustainable practices including, but not limited to, conferences, publications, mailings,

and others.

The ELD Task Force should produce two sets of recommendations/guidelines for ELD to consider:

Recommendation #1: Focus specifically on what ELD can do.

Recommendation #2: Address what might be done more broadly. This second set of recommendations would be taken by the ELD Chair to the PIC IV Chair for possible consideration by the ASEE Board.
