2020 Environmental Measurement Symposium
Aug 3-7, 2020 • Hyatt Regency • Minneapolis, MN

Minneapolis, MN


The COVID-19 situation that is currently affecting our entire country is something that the EMS Steering Committee is watching closely. At the moment, no changes are planned for the 2020 Symposium and it will proceed as scheduled.   Should circumstances change that would lead us to cancel or postpone this year’s Symposium, we will make sure that news is distributed quickly. More information will follow as we get closer to this event.

The NELAC Institute (TNI) and the United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) are the co-sponsors of the Environmental Measurement Symposium, the largest conference focused on environmental measurements in North America.

In 2007, we created this Symposium by combining the National Environmental Monitoring Conference (NEMC) with the Forum on Environmental Accreditation. This change reduced the travel costs and time commitments for those who have attended both meetings and provided new opportunities for those who have only participated in one of these events in the past. Since we combined the meetings, attendance has more than doubled, the number of technical papers has grown and the quality of the exhibit program has significantly improved.
