Circular Economy
What is it? And why should we care?

A Fireside Chat with
Chuck Nemer, CPIM, CSCP, CLTD
Founder, Circular Economy Club, Twin Cities Chapter

Monday, February 22, 2021, 5:30pm CST

Virtual Networking and Fireside Chat


Have you heard about the Circular Economy?  Do you feel the urgency?  Or do you think it’s unnecessary?

One of the biggest advancements that can be made anywhere, in any industry, is to prevent a problem before others become aware that it is a problem.  If we wait for the garbage to be piled up in our own backyard, well that’s too late, isn’t it?

We hear people talking about the Circular Economy, but it all seems too big and too vast.  Someone should be working on it, but I have my own troubles.  Sound familiar?

On February 22, we’ll sit down with Chuck Nemer and collect enough information to be informed about the Circular Economy and learn why it is vital for us to use this information and how we can impact our planet by not ignoring but embracing the need for innovative thinking.
