Below is the announcement for the upcoming DEQ Dioxin Meeting. Please note the change in location. Also please share this far and wide. It is my understanding that there will be no announcement in the local papers. Dow Chemical apparently has declined to take part in the meeting or pay for the ads in the local papers.
