Every year, PNW-SETAC holds a regional conference in mid-April. Locations vary throughout the region, but are usually in WA or OR, occasionally in BC. Conferences typically include a special session and/or short course on Thursday afternoon, followed by a full day of sessions on Friday and a half-day of sessions on Saturday. We also have fun social events and a regional chapter meeting. For example past programs and photos, please click on the links to the left.

Sustaining and corporate memberships are special categories of membership available to individuals who donate $1500 for a lifetime membership and corporations who donate $1000 in a year.

~ Presentation FileSharing ~
In our continuing quest to bring new technologies to the Chapter, we will for the first time at the 2012 conference be providing the opportunity to post and share poster and platform presentations to other conference attendees. Presenters will be able to upload their presentations to a file-sharing site, and registrants will be given the password to view and download the presentations. Presenters will have the option of whether to post their materials, depending on the public availability or sensitivity of the information.
