San Diego Mission Valley Marriott
December 2 & 3, 2004

CMTA has joined again with the Industrial Environmental Association (IEA) to stage the 3rd Annual Environmental and Regulatory Issues Conference and Exposition in San Diego, December 2nd and 3rd, at the Marriott Mission Valley. California has long led the nation in pioneering environmental regulations and solutions. If your company is concerned about the gut environmental issues that California industry will face in 2005, this conference should be a "must attend".

Preceding the conference, on Wednesday, December 1st, pre-registration will be available and the conference will sponsor its first golf tournament. This "best ball" event will be held at the Riverwalk Golf Course. (Note: the deadline for golf sign-up is next Wednesday, November 17th.)

The program starts in earnest on Thursday morning, December 2nd, with a presentation to the entire conference on Sacramento politics by Tony Quinn, whose views are always insightful and amusing. For the remainder of the day, there will be four simultaneous tracks: air quality, water quality, hazardous materials and environmental sustainability. If you have interests in more than one of these topics, you should consider sending more than one company representative.

Knowledgeable and high ranking officials in US EPA, Cal EPA and local districts will expound on their agencies' "hot button" issues for the coming year. In addition, industry representatives and members of the regulated community, including environmental activist organizations, will present their outlook for the future and discuss such timely subjects as: biomonitoring, PM2.5, environmental justice, management responsibility, TMDL’s and European standards.

On Friday, there will be an early morning session on liquid natural gas, fuel for the future, followed by a series of views on Schwarzenegger’s California Performance Review, the changing legislature, the precautionary principle and reality in air pollution statistics. At the same time, there will also be a track on biotechnology in the morning and a plating shop compliance workshop all day.
