Joseph Gorsuch and Ruth Hull, SETAC North America Endowment Fund Trustees

It’s difficult to imagine what it would be like without our SETAC family that focuses on multidisciplinary, global environmental issues. Being a part of this exceptional international organization, we find a sense of identity and excitement. The SETAC North America 40th Annual Meeting will be held from 3–7 November in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. To celebrate our society’s 40th anniversary, we are creating a photo mosaic to show the many faces of SETAC.

Through our engagement, each of us has contributed to this society, and together we made it into what it is today. We thank all of you who have authored, reviewed, read or shared an article from Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry, Integrated Environmental Assessment and Management or the SETAC Globe, attended or presented research at a SETAC meeting, or volunteered on a board, council, committee or Interest Group. The photo mosaic will be displayed at the annual meeting where attendees can try finding their own photo as well as those of their colleagues.

To be included in the SETAC North America 40th Anniversary photo mosaic, please submit a photo of yourself or a group to You will be asked to enter your name, email and upload the photo. Photos can be formal or candid, selfies, and of course, you can use the photos from last year’s headshot lounge. The deadline to submit a photo is 31 August. Please help us to complete this photo mosaic!
