Certification News- Rumpke Tour

39 Lean Leaders recently toured the Rumpke Recycling Facility in Cincinnati as part of their continuing education.  During a 90 minute walk around the facility, Lean Leaders learned about the technology used at the state of the art material recovery facility.  Those on the tours were able to see how recyclables are sorted and the importance of recycling only acceptable items.  It was truly an eye-opening experience on how Lean can impact recycling.  This educational experience will hopefully encourage new Lean sustainability/green initiatives at Miami.

2020 Lean Fair- Connecting the Dots- Save the Date

Plans are currently being made for the 2020 Lean Fair. The Fair will be held on Wednesday, January 15th, 2020 in the Armstrong Student Center.  The Lean Fair theme for this year will be “Connecting the Dots” and celebrating Miami’s continuous improvement initiatives and success.  The Lean Fair planning team has been hard at work designing and arranging some new ideas for the upcoming event but they need your help!

This year the planning team is proposing to double the number of booths.  Please use this link to submit a booth proposal for consideration.  As a reminder, volunteering at the fair fulfills the service requirement for continuing education.
