SETAC Globe - Environmental Quality Through Science
New Globe Editors-in-Chief
Bill Goodfellow, Tim Canfield
Mary Reiley Starting with this issue of the Globe, we are assuming the responsibilities of editors-in-chief. This task is a little bit intimidating because we are taking the reins from John Toll, who restructured the Globe as a successful, electronic-only publication. The Globe, along with SETAC News, provides our membership with news and information within the society. Using the email platform ensures this information finds you in a timely manner, and you get to decide if you want to look further. This is by design because the demands on all our time is only increasing, not decreasing. Pertinent information that you can access as your schedule permits is important to all of us.

Our membership spans 98 countries, and consequently our global outreach continues to be formidable, reinforced this year by our Global Horizon Scanning Project, which sets out to prioritize the environmental issues and challenges starting with each of the Geographic Units (GUs).

NASACStudent Perspectives of the SETAC Vancouver Meeting
Austin Gray, Blair Paulik
The SETAC North America 35th Annual Meeting in Vancouver, British Columbia, was very successful in the eyes of students of SETAC. For some students this was their first annual meeting. For others it was a reunion with student members met at previous meetings and a chance to catch up and reconnect. It also provided a platform that allowed students to interact with new people and build new relationships. After the meeting, many students emphasized how impressed they were with the high priority SETAC puts on student interests. SETAC and NASAC are continuing to work diligently to ensure that students have an even stronger voice within the society.
