CMTA’s annual environmental training and symposium is scheduled for Thursday, October 29th, and Friday, October 30th, at the San Diego Convention Center. Again this year, our partner for the conference is the Industrial Environmental Association. The theme is: “Prospering with Limited Resources.”

We are expecting approximately 400 attendees consisting of environmental health and safety professionals, environmental engineers, consultants, attorneys and government affairs representatives. The attendees represent manufacturing, biotech and high tech companies, as well as the Department of Defense and federal, state and local regulators.

There will be sessions on virtually every environmental topic that is currently being discussed in California: the drought/water conservation, storm water regulations, Proposition 65, climate change implementation, permitting, green chemistry, health risk assessment guidelines, vapor intrusion, hazardous material handling, recycling/zero waste, energy reliability, emerging contaminants and more. Felicia Marcus, the chair of the State Water Resources Control Board, Barbara Lee, the Director of the Department of Toxic Substances Control and Allan Hirsch, Deputy Director of OEHHA are scheduled to speak, as well as other regulators from CalEPA.

During lunch on Thursday, Environmental Excellence awards will be presented to worthy companies, organizations and agencies that have distinguished themselves by thinking “outside the box.”

Schedule of events.

Register. Discounts are available to CMTA members. Contact Marisa Hull at MHull@cmta.net for the special code.

There is also an Air Permitting 101 course offered on that Friday afternoon at a fee of $99, but it is free to those registered for the conference.

We hope to see you in San Diego!
