The Environmental Laboratory Accreditation Program (ELAP) team is excited to host the first ever ELAP Conference! ELAP’s mission is to implement a sustainable accreditation program that ensures laboratories generate environmental and public health data of known, consistent, and documented quality to meet stakeholder needs. Our vision is to implement an effective program through continuous improvement where California programs will utilize the highest quality scientific data as a foundation for environmental and public health program decisions. We would not be able to complete our mission without the support and collaboration of stakeholders and laboratories throughout the state. Attend ELAP’s inaugural conference for an opportunity to engage with the laboratory community, listen to informative presentations on hot topics, and network with likeminded individuals. Our theme “Quality through Collaboration” embraces the vision for ELAP’s meaningful partnership with accredited environmental testing laboratories, stakeholders, and agency partners throughout the state.
