The SETAC meeting in Portland, OR was the best I've attended to date. I arrived early, stayed late, and absorbed the platforms and posters like a sponge. It was great to see old friends and colleagues. While I was there, I had a chance to meet with Jason Anderson, who showed me some inexpensive solutions to update this web page. So there you have it! A new web page. Please use it, because it is YOUR web page. Submit announcements, especially student activities! The page is here for you.
