The Hudson-Delaware Chapter of the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (HDC-SETAC) is a professional society for environmental scientists, engineers and related disciplines concerned with environmental science and health located in the Hudson River and Delaware River metropolitan area.

HDC-SETAC is a regional chapter of SETAC, a national scientific non-profit organization of about 4,000 members and was founded in 1984, making it one of the first established regional chapters within North America. In 2015, the chapter continues to attract scientists and students from academia, consulting, government, and industry. We offer an informative and educational (but fun!) Annual Spring Meeting and Fall Workshop to enhance our knowledge of environmental sciences, offer opportunities for students and an award program, and scientific interchange at all HDC-SETAC events.

The HDC-SETAC Board of Directors invites all environmental scientists and students to visit our website and learn about the chapter. We would love to have you attend our events and appreciate any comments that you may have about the website, our events or about the chapter in general. HDC-SETAC is all about environmental scientists and students of our region and our meetings and workshops are designed to educate attendees about current issues and topics of the Hudson/Delaware region. We would like YOU to be involved with us!!!
