CONFERENCE WELCOME MESSAGE
On behalf of the California Manufacturers and Technology Association, the Industrial Environmental Association and the Chemical Industry Council of California, welcome to the Second Annual Statewide Environmental Issues Conference. This year our theme, "Balancing Environmental Needs and Economic Realities," recognizes the current economic downturn and an unprecedented era of cutting costs, fewer resources and growing environmental mandates that will continue to test California's competitiveness with other states, as well as in the global economy.
Our three organizations are dedicated to your business success and your company's future. This conference technical program is designed to give you a broad overview of what is new, what is changing and what to expect with major state and federal regulatory programs. The presentations will also provide you with emerging business strategies and tools to keep your company current and informed. You will learn about new legislation, regulatory developments, rulemaking proceedings and best practices from top agency officials, industry colleagues and expert engineering and environmental consultants. We take a look at the science, the public policy and the politics.
The companies represented at this conference represent the backbone of California's economy, and we welcome your attendance and participation in California's only statewide Environmental Issues Summit.
