1 Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry Environmental Quality Through Science ® About the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC) SETAC is a not-for-profit, global professional organization comprised of some 6,000 individual members and institutions from academia, business and government. Since 1979, the Society has provided a forum where scientists, managers and other professionals exchange information and ideas on the study, analysis and solution of environmental problems, the management and regulation of natural resources, research and development, and environmental education. Founding principles ● Multidisciplinary approaches to solving environmental problems ● Tripartite balance among academia, business and government ● Science-based objectivity Mission Support the development of principles and practices for protection, enhancement and management of sustainable environmental quality and ecosystem integrity. Geographic Units Africa Asia/Pacific Europe Latin America North America Journals Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (ET&C) Integrated Environmental Assessment and Management (IEAM) Meetings ● Regional Chapter/Branch meetings at the local scale ● Annual meetings held by Geographic Units ○ SETAC North America’s meeting is in November each year with ~2500 attendees ○ Student Travel & Best Student Presentation awards given annually at 3 degree levels ● Focused Topic Meetings, Special Science Symposia, Workshops, and Summer Schools ○ PREDITOX, LCA Case Studies, Deep Water Horizon, Climate Change, Bioavailability Web: Academia Government SETAC Business

2 Mission The mission of the CAG is to recruit and retain chemists to SETAC, and to promote professional and social activities to emphasize chemistry--the "C" in SETAC. Membership Membership in the Chemistry Advisory Group is open to all SETAC members, and to all professionals and students interested in the topics addressed by the CAG. Members must have a commitment to the purpose, goals, and operating guidelines of the Chemistry Advisory Group. About SETAC’s Chemistry Advisory Group The Chemistry Advisory Group (CAG) strives to improve and sustain the inherent interdisciplinary nature of the SETAC organization in members and expertise. We increase awareness of and relevance for environmental chemistry through opportunities in scientific education and communication for chemists in the environmental field. Activities ● Student Exchange Award with ACS ENVR Division- Exchange of student presenters to each other’s national meetings ● Chemist Travel Award- Non-SETAC member awardee and mentees receive hotel and registration for SETAC North America (NA) Annual Meeting ● CAG sponsored sessions at SETAC NA Annual Meeting ○ Effect-Directed Environmental Analysis, Innovative Environment, Safer Consumer Products ● SETAC/CAG co-sponsored sessions at ACS meetings ○ Nanomaterials, Air Quality at the Interface: Megacities and Agroecosystems ● Networking/Social event at SETAC NA Annual Meeting Web: Dan Snow- Chemistry Advisory Group
