AIHAThe American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) is declaring the two-day Leadership Workshop it hosted last month a resounding success.

The Leadership Workshop promotes the continued success and development of the occupational and environmental health and safety profession. The Academy of Industrial Hygiene also supported this year’s event.

Held October 26 - 28 in San Antonio, TX in conjunction with the AIHA Fall Conference, the 2012 Leadership Workshop drew 120 attendees representing 36 AIHA local sections, 44 volunteer groups, and 17 student local sections.  Participants included AIHA Board members, Local Section Regional Representatives, and leaders from the Local Sections and the Student Local Sections Councils.

“Our volunteers dedicate their time and effort to AIHA and the industrial hygiene profession at-large. The workshop assists these professionals by providing them with the tools and resources necessary to foster leadership within the profession.  It's also a great opportunity to meet other volunteers and share ideas,” noted Barbara J. Dawson, CIH, CSP, AIHA President-Elect.  “By leveraging resources, our volunteers are able to guide the association’s future development.  I had attended this workshop in the past, as both a technical committee chair and a local section president, and found it very helpful.”
