Shades of Green 2013
Building on the successes of the past, GC Shades of Green W.E.T. Symposium is an initiative of the GC Sustainability Council for 2013. Events will be held on April 22, 23, & 24.
GC Shades of Green is a sustainability initiative begun by Dr. Doreen (Dee) Sams, Associate Marketing Professor in 2008 with an invitation extended to Carl Perazzola, Deputy Chief of the Corrosion Prevention arm of the US Air Force to her classroom to speak on sustainability. His talk was an instant hit. In 2009, Deputy Chief Perazzola was joined through a live Internet feed to one of Dr. Sams's masters classes by Monica Ospina a professor at Seneca College in Canada. In 2009, the event turned into a panel event and by 2010 the panel of events was under the direction of a Founding Board consisting of Dr. Sams, Gerri McCord, and JaLynn Hudnall. The event was housed in the J. Whitney Bunting College of Business where by 2011 it was a full week of events. By the vastness of its scope, the event became part of the GC Sustainability Council's offering to GC and the community. Events for April 2013 will be held in Milledgeville and Macon, Georgia. Familiar faces such as General Motors, Mage Solar and Valvoline will be back along with new faces and new opportunities.
