Dear NorCal SETAC Members,
We understand that the sequestration has left many without
approval to travel to scientific meetings. This puts individuals who wish
to attend the NorCal SETAC Annual Meeting in a difficult position of having to
take a personal day, unpaid in order to attend. In light of this
situation, the NorCal SETAC Board of Directors would like to extend a registration
waiver for the first 29 government employees who send their
request for the registration waiver for the meeting.
If you would like to apply for this waiver, please send an
email to Charlie Huang (Charlie.Huang@wildlife.ca.gov)
with your request. Please note, that
you must either provide proof that your agency will not fund your meeting
attendance or show a federal employee identification card to obtain
the waiver. This proof can be sent via
email to Charlie, or be delivered in-person to the meeting registration
desk on May 9.
