CMTA is holding its annual environmental summit in San Diego this year in conjunction with the Industrial Environmental Association (IEA) and the Chemical Industry Coalition of California (CICC).  It will be held on Tuesday and Wednesday, October 21st and 22nd at the Catamaran Resort Hotel on Mission Bay and only a block from the Pacific Beach Boardwalk.   

This is a new era for doing business in California.  Climate change, green chemistry, water quality, health, safety and security programs are all having a profound impact, creating both new opportunities and challenges.  California businesses are out in the forefront, leading the way on developing sustainable business practices and incorporating continuous improvements throughout their facilities and operations.

The conference, "Navigating in an Ever-Greening World", will provide businesses with a broad overview of what is new, what has changed and what to expect in the future.  Conference attendees will learn about the latest legislatively-mandated programs, regulatory trends and best practices from top regulatory officials, industry colleagues and environmental experts.  Issues will be examined in-depth as we look at the science, the public policy and the politics.

To give you a flavor for our speakers, we have the following State legislators confirmed: Senator Joseph Simitian (D-Palo Alto), Assemblymember Mike Feuer (D-Los Angeles, and Assemblymember Cameron Smyth (R-Santa Clarita).  Distinguished agency regulators: Dr. Gary Wolff from the State Water Board, Director Maureen Gorsen from the State Department of Toxic Substance Control and Amy Zimpfer from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

There will also be four tracks running simultaneously on air, water, green chemistry and sustainability.

In conjunction with the conference, a golf tournament will be held on Wednesday afternoon, October 22nd, at the beautiful Coronado Municipal Golf Course.   

This is the most comprehensive conference of its type on the hot topics of the day.
