CMTA and IEA (the Industrial Environmental Association) are holding their Sixth Annual Environmental and Regulatory Conference and Exhibition at the San Diego Mission Valley Marriott Hotel on November 7-9, 2007.

The State of California is out front in environmental leadership and our state’s businesses are at a critical juncture with a profound shift in the way they conduct their operations. This is a time of unprecedented challenges ranging from global climate change, new water quality and conservation mandates, supply chain management, waste reduction and industrial chemicals oversight. Companies are dedicated to achieving operational and process improvements to reduce the facility footprint, maintain the highest level of environmental performance and compliance and adopt best practices for sustainable business growth.

These are some of the many the issues that will be examined in-depth as we look at the science, the policy and the politics of the environment at our 2007 conference titled, "The Greening of California Businesses.".

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn the latest from the state’s top public regulatory officials and state-of-the art business strategies from California industry leaders and environmental experts. We welcome your attendance and participation in the State of California’s only Environmental and Regulatory Conference in learning how you can turn business risks into business opportunities. 

Activities will start off at 11:30AM on Wednesday, November 7th with a best ball golf tournament at Riverwalk Golf Course in San Diego.

The portion of the conference of primary importance to our members will occur on Thursday, November 8th and the program will get underway at 8AM.  The mission of the conference is to provide you with a background on the issues you will be facing in the coming year both from the regulatory agencies and the State Legislature.  Speakers will be covering: stormwater, Proposition 65, global climate change, green chemistry, sustainability, product stewardship, recycling, reporting, hazardous materials, air quality, water quality, etc.  During Thursday’s luncheon, there will be a presentation of awards to California companies who have distinguished themselves through environmental excellence.  There is still time to submit your company for one of these awards.

Friday’s program will primarily interest printed circuit board manufacturers and metal finishing and plating shop industries.
