Aremacs Awards 2023: our Bordeaux branch honors its volunteers! update

Aremacs Awards 2023: our Bordeaux branch honors its volunteers!

Last month, the teams at our Bordeaux branch dedicated their monthly aperitif to those without whom we wouldn't exist: our volunteers!
At the Maison de la Nature et de l'Environnement, 10 volunteers were honored in various categories for the 2023 season: the person most present on the ground, the quiet force, the female and male revelations...
The Aremacs Awards trophies were designed using gloves, which we use at events to pick up litter. Cleverly painted gold and solidified with a cup inside, this nod to our association's flagship activity has made other branches envious!
Thanks to all our volunteers, past and present, for their support and commitment. Thank you to our employees for their daily work. And thank you for supporting us by becoming a sponsor!

Our figures for 2022 are finally available!

Our general meeting was held in Bordeaux on April 1, 2023, and it was an opportunity to take stock of the year 2022 for the association.
Here are our figures for the year 2022: 
- 150 events / 143 animations / 33 training courses (186 events and 161 animations in 2019) ;
- 1314 salaried days.es (1866 salaried days in 2019) ;
- 462 volunteer members for 3434 volunteer days (451 volunteer members and 3446 volunteer days in 2019) ;
- 2,935,552 people met (2,077,761 people in 2019) ;
- 28.77 FTE (Full Time Equivalent) (19.5 FTE in 2019) ;
- over 450 tons of waste recovered.
Although we are seeing an overall drop in our figures compared with 2019 (pre-Covid), we are noticing an increase in the efficiency of our teams in the field, massive recruitment which is playing on the Quality of Life and Working Conditions, as well as a major growth in the people we meet and come into contact with our awareness tools! 
The year 2023 should continue on this momentum! We'll keep you regularly updated on the progress of the project and news from the association!!
A warm thank you to the Captain.es for your support, which is essential to us.

Align customer loyalty and solidarity.
Let's start!
