Creating a Greener Community: Developing an
Environmentally Friendly ASA Conference
In 2009 NGCSU gathered and shared data on the greenness of businesses in the community
to aid going greener prior to the Appalachian Studies Association conference in spring
2010. The ultimate goal is to attract more conferences and groups to North Georgia.
The data generated should aid civic groups like the Chamber of Commerce or the Downtown
Development Authority to attract tourists and possibly new businesses. We will work
with the ASA conference to make sure conference attendees have information for supporting
and experiencing a green North Georgia.
