WC14 - Networking 2

Annual World Congress Community Service Project

SATURDAY, JULY 26 • 3:00PM–5:30PM

NCMA has created an event for chapter leaders to give back while networking in a more casual environment! Summer Chapter Leader Summit can attend during 3:30PM-4:30PM.

Have you ever wondered what happens to all of the unused hygiene products you leave behind after your hotel stay?

Believe it or not, they are actually discarded! Clean the World was established in 2009 by Shawn Seipler and Paul Till to address this problem. The company collects and recycles the products discarded by the hospitality industry every day, and then works to distribute these items to impoverished people, with a goal of preventing the millions of deaths caused by hygiene-related illnesses every day.
