Brenda Barton (left) and Barbara Musgrove (right) get in the AASHE spirit!
The Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE) Conference and Expo was held in San Antonio from October 15-18. This conference is said to be the "gold standard" for sustainability conferences in higher education. Brenda Barton, Business Administrator, and Barbara Musgrove, Graphic Designer, attended this conference to represent SSC and support Texas A&M's Office of Sustainability.
Barbara has recently been named the Vice-Chair for Texas A&M University’s Sustainability Environmental Management Committee (SEMC) and found AASHE a great opportunity to learn from professionals in the field. She has also taken the lead on sustainability initiatives at SSC’s Facilities Services building and was able to solidify some promising vendor contacts while at the expo.
