– From Apple I-pad Forum: “More and more boards have decided to quit using paper for meetings and turned to the popular iPad, tablets”.

In October 2011, San Mateo Event Center General Manager – Chris Carpenter,  reported to the Center’s board on the San Mateo Event Center’s efforts to move toward paperless meetings and a reduction in copy machine usage.   He suggested the purchase of iPads to be used by the staff and Board for meetings.  The iPads would be pre-loaded with the meeting materials in order to avoid making unnecessary copies.  All iPads would remain on the San Mateo Event Center’s property when not in use.  The Board concurred with Manager Carpenter on this purchase.  This initial investments will translate into saving in printing costs of 25-100 pages per meeting and the priceless reduction of our natural resources.

San Mateo Event Center is looking ahead to 2012 as a new year in GREEN efforts as they develop a  sustainability plan.
