The 2019 CLEAN PACIFIC Conference program is being planned right now!
Planning Committee meeting to set conference agenda...

Right now, a prestigious group of leaders made up of operators, state, federal and provincial regulators, consultants, service companies and OSROs are in Seattle, WA, planning the conference agenda for the CLEAN PACIFIC Conference & Exhibition. The conference will consist of 3 tracks covering spill prevention and response matters pertinent to the Western United States and Canada’s environmental sensitivities. The goal of CLEAN PACIFIC is to deliver a valuable event that covers the most pressing issues to our community and offers ample time for attendees to network and cultivate the relationships that are crucial to a successful response.

Conference sessions will be announced next month, and we’re excited about the content being planned in today’s meeting! While the sessions are being planned, check out the event website to view a list of exhibitors, sponsors and keep up-to-date with event announcements.
