A Year of Paperless Meetings

The Port Authority keeps proving its a tech-savvy, government innovator.

A year of paperless Port Authority Board meetings now under our belt, these are the results just in from the Finance Department: 

4020 pages of paper saved.

That's eight reams of paper and the equivalent of half of a tree.

Though no one could argue the effort saved money versus the paper way, it did save on staff time packaging, mailing materials, and postage.  Plus, it's pretty cool (and probably a little bit futuristic) to watch a room full of 12 people on iPads conducting business.
