Registration is now open! We welcome you to join our chapter and please consider joining us for dinner on Monday evening. Please note the Early bird dates too.
We are thrilled to announce that Libby Sommer, director of Corporate Responsibility at Bolt Threads, will be our plenary speaker this year. She will share her journey to biomimicry, building regenerative approaches for business and consumers.
For nearly two decades, my passion for more sustainable design and development has taken me from the US EPA to Nike and now to Bolt Threads, a start-up working on new biomaterials. I believe we have incredible tools to understand environmental and social impact, but their application is still niche. This means companies are missing out on early wins to reduce impact, and risking much more expensive retrofits in the future as products become commercialized. I'm excited to share Bolt's story of how we're building sustainability into our product design and scale-up, and why our customers like adidas, Stella McCartney and lululemon are demanding it.
You can book with the hotel or stay in a wide variety of places in Troutdale or Portland.

The PNW-SETAC Board is working to develop the conference program so start thinking about what you’d like to share at 2023 Annual Conference! In addition to your research, we welcome presentations discussing the context for our shared work. Contaminant science is inextricably linked to the natural world, material economy, human health and the global chemical industry.

Every year, PNW SETAC holds a three-day conference in spring or early summer. Locations vary throughout the region, but are usually in Washington or Oregon, and occasionally in Idaho or British Columbia, Canada. Conferences typically include a special session, workshop, and/or short course on the first day, followed by a full day of sessions on the second day and a half-day of sessions on the third. We also have fun social events and a PNW SETAC General Membership meeting. Proposals for Sessions and Short Courses are accepted all year-round. Just Contact Us!
On average we have more than 100 attendees each year, comprised of professionals who bracket a range of years to decades working in their fields, as well as students who are just preparing to enter their career fields. As such, the PNW SETAC Board of Directors strives diligently each year to provide the best venue possible to discuss current and emerging issues in environmental toxicology and chemistry in the Pacific Northwest. We hope you consider joining us!
