What SETAC Members Say

Fantastic job on the Nashville meeting! The sessions were filled with top notch research, and the poster sessions were impressive. I have learned so much from this meeting, and it has been valuable already in terms of applying it to what I’m doing here at NIEHS. Thank you, and well done!
Heather Henry, NIEHS Superfund Research Program
I have never missed an annual meeting of SETAC North America since the first meeting in 1980. A primary reason why I choose to participate, is SETAC’s mission to provide a non-advocacy forum for communication among scientists and managers in government, NGOs, business, and academia. The annual meetings, workshops, and publications have defined my professional experiences throughout my career.
Chris Ingersoll, USGS Columbia Environmental Research Center
I was a graduate student in 1989–1991, during an economic recession. I had to pay my own way to the SETAC meetings (sharing a hotel room with three other girls!). However, it was worth every penny, as I got my first two jobs because of my networking at SETAC (1991 in Seattle). My first job, a 6-month contract with the State of Minnesota Pollution Control Agency in their Superfund program, came about from someone I met around the posters. My second job, with Oak Ridge National Laboratory, came about because I met Glenn Suter at a Student Mentoring event. The rest, as they say, is history.
