As part of the program, a vendor showcase was implemented to help inform participants of new technology-based initiatives. Complimentary massages were also given from the College’s partner, Olson Chiropractic. AVA Recycling was in attendance and setup a display on the laws around electronics recycling that just recently went into effect in the State of Illinois.
