Site Allocation Exercise II was conducted last week (Thu 25 Apr 2013) and the ICCS Zone Captains and I met to allocate Organistions to beaches and mangroves in preparation for International Coastal Cleanup 2013.
We allocated 19 organisations that evening, who registered 1,415 participants. The exercise involves processing the queue bidding for sites, answering and asking questions, re-establishing contacts and reallocation.
Several quick phone calls to Organisers and discussion with the experienced Zone Captains who have conducted their reccees, settled this round of the ICCS process.
This brings the present status to 2,955 volunteers from 52 organisations (see: iccs-status.rafflesmuseum.net). Registration is still open and Site Allocation Exercise III will take place at the end of May.
Several sites are still open and we will usually see another 1,000 signing up each year. Registration is still open, which we will process during two more exercises at the end of May and at the end of June.
After this, registration will be finally closed and we will focus our efforts on the joint recces, ICCS Workshops, National Day cleanup and the Year-Round Coastal Cleanups.
