The Commission moved to a public meeting format in 2014 and it will remain in place for this year’s Interim Meeting, scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday, 29-30 November 2016. The meeting will be held in Seattle at the Grand Hyatt Seattle.  The public sessions are scheduled for 9:00 am - 5:00 pm on Tuesday and 9:00 am - 12:30 pm on Wednesday in the Leonesa Room.

The 93rd Session of the IPHC Interim Meeting (IM093) was held 28-29 November 2017 at the Grand Hyatt Seattle in Seattle, Washington, USA. New this year, the meeting required attendees to pre-register.

All of the staff presentations and discussion were open to public attendance. These public sessions were also webcast for those unable to attend in person. The meeting agenda, meeting documents, and webcast information were posted at the IPHC website (http://www.iphc.int/meetings-and-events/interim-meeting.html) as they became available. The webcast recordings and the meeting presentations will be posted on the website following the meeting.

Schedule and Agenda

  • All sessions except Executive and Finance and Administration are open to public attendance.
  • All public sessions will be webcast. Webcast sessions will also take audience comments and questions as directed by the Chair.
  • Topics not completed Tuesday will be taken up in the Wednesday morning session.

The Commission tested a new public format for this year's Interim Meeting on Tuesday and Wednesday, 2-3 December. Previous meetings were held in the IPHC headquarters offices in Seattle and, although the meetings have been webcast, the available space limited outside attendance to a small number. This year's Interim Meeting was held at the Hotel Deca in Seattle, WA.
