The 12th annual CARE Conference was held May 7-8 in Seattle, WA. Among this year's highlights of the conference: the naming of a new CARE board chairman, Person of the Year and Recycler of the Year as well as recognition for several Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI) member manufacturers as CARE Sustaining Members for their consistent support of carpet recycling, sustainability and CARE. 
 
On the first day of the conference, Brendan McSheehy, of Universal Fibers, was named CARE's Board of Directors chairman.
 
"CARE has set ambitious goals and objectives, and I hope to offer the leadership necessary to put credible mechanisms in place to reach our mission," he said. 
 
Many CRI member companies were honored as Sustaining Partners for their dedication to CARE and its initiatives. Those recognized include Aquafil USA, Beaulieu Group, InterfaceFLOR, J+J Flooring Group, Masland Contract, Milliken & Company, The Mohawk Group, Shaw Industries, Tandus/Centiva and Universal Fibers.
 
CARE also awarded Thomas Holland, of Texas Carpet and Construction Recycling, with its Person of the Year award. Recycler of the Year was given to Wellman Plastics Recycling.
 
"The Carpet and Rug Institute is extremely proud of the progress the carpet industry and the recycling community have made in keeping carpet out of landfills and finding voluntary, market-based solutions for that diverted material," said CRI President Joe Yarbrough. " By working together, we will continue to expand what can be done."
