CSEA Annual Meeting 2020
Thank You to Everyone Who Attended our 1st Annual CSEA Meeting
The TNI Forum on Environmental Accreditation
The TNI Forum on Environmental Accreditation was a networking experience that was invaluable, and a great way to see how the accreditation world works. From the one-person lab to the large lab, there was something for everyone. The California Society of Environmental Analysts held its first annual meeting at the Forum and has obtained permission to share the powerpoint presentations of the speakers.
Our theme this year was “Be in the Know: California Emerging Contaminants” covering PFAS and microplastics. The talks sparked a lot of discussion so please, for those of you unable to attend the Forum, take a look at the presentations and feel free to email the speakers with your questions. We will continue to keep you in the know as these and other emerging contaminants begin to be regulated.
