What’s New in 2018
Attendees can expect to see a few new activities this November that represent our commitment to science communication and community engagement, education, family values and simply, having a bit of fun:
SETAC “Town Hall” Goes Outdoors
Sunday afternoon will offer an opportunity for SETAC members to engage with the local community. In cooperation with Downtown Sacramento Partnership, meeting attendees are invited to join a street clean-up event to show our commitment to clean cities, clean water and clean products. Bring your science communication skills and connect one-on-one with the Sacramento community. Learn more about the “Community Connection Event”…
Free Headshot Lounge
As a service to our members and meeting attendees, SETAC is providing a free headshot lounge on Wednesday. Photos are on a first-come, first-served basis and will be emailed to you after the meeting. No appointments necessary. Learn more…
Meet Your Future Employer
SETAC North America is hosting its first job event as part of the annual meeting in Sacramento. Designed in the style of a “speed-dating” event, we are partnering 40 students and recent graduates with 10 organizations. Learn more…
Thursday Professional Training Courses
Sacramento is home to a diverse collection of state and federal public agencies. As a result, we have answered requests for training and education options during the work week by offering two half-day professional training courses on Thursday (statistics and source apportionment). Attendees who register for Thursday only receive a 50% discount as an additional incentive. Further, local, state and federal government employees of California receive a 50% discount off their full or single day (Monday–Wednesday) meeting registration.
De-Stress at the #SETACToronto Pup Rally
At the end of the meeting, when your head is about to burst from all the science, we are bringing something unique to this year’s event to “pup” you up and get you through the last day. Learn more…
Family Friendly Policy Evolves
The SETAC North America Board of Directors recognizes the demands faced by young scientists navigating the balance between work–life commitments. As a result, accompanied minors will be allowed in all meeting areas, in addition to providing an on-site nursing room and connections with local childcare resources.
