Whether this is your first meeting and you are anxious to learn more about SETAC or your 38th meeting and you hope to inspire the next generation of scientists, the New Member Breakfast is an ideal way to network and enhance your conference experience. Fuel up on complimentary C8H10N4O2 and light breakfast items in an informal setting while socializing with other SETACers, including members of the SETAC North America Board of Directors and SETAC North America committees.
