Environmental Measurement Symposium

New Orleans, LA  •  August 2018

Welcome to the
Environmental Measurement Symposium

The 2018 Environmental Measurement Symposium is the combined meeting of The NELAC Institute's (TNI) Forum on Environmental Accreditation and the National Environmental Monitoring Conference (NEMC), a technical conference managed by TNI under a cooperative agreement with the US Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA). Your attendance and participation are key elements to the Symposium's success. Look forward to a week of shared expert knowledge; energetic discussions of current issues and concerns affecting environmental monitoring and laboratories; exploration of products and services to support your endeavours; and invaluable networking with peers.

If this is your first time attending the Symposium, we hope you find it stimulating and beneficial. Our registration staff and technical help desk staff are available to assist you with any questions or to locate individuals you want to meet. Please let us know how we can help make your participation in the Symposium a success.

Have a great week!
