NEHA's Annual Educational Conference & Exhibition.
Every year, NEHA's conference attendees are thrilled with the selection of educational sessions, workshops, networking opportunities, special events, and exhibitors. Listen to what attendees from last year's AEC in Anchorage had to say about the conference:
WOW! What a conference NEHA put on in Anchorage.... The conference covered many interesting topics. This year a major topic was bioterrorism. Other topics included water and wastewater, food safety, swimming pools, air quality, solid waste, hazardous waste, GIS and technology, and many, many more. The great thing about the national conference is that there are so many different sessions with such varying topics to attend all week long. In addition to all the educational sessions, there were so many exhibitors showing their wares.... Serving as an affiliate president also got me involved in numerous meetings; some gave me an opportunity to voice concerns to NEHA and others to give NEHA ideas on how to best lobby for the EH professional in Washington.... I also want to encourage everyone to attend a future NEHA Annual Educational Conference. There is surely something of interest to anyone in the field at the conference and plenty of opportunities to complete CEU requirements (Kroeger, 2004, p. 2). Roy Kroeger, R.E.H.S. Past President of the Wyoming Environmental Health Association As is the case with many return trips, the 5,000 miles seemed like twice that coming back to Florida.... However, that is a small price to pay for what may very well be, for some FEHA members, the trip of a lifetime. National conferences such as the annual NEHA conference provide unique networking opportunities where FEHA members can obtain valuable resource information as well as ideas for ways to improve existing environmental health programs in Florida (Coulter, 2004, p. 26). Edith Coulter, M.P.H. Florida Environmental Health Association The conference educational courses were excellent, and it was hard to choose what to attend. A CD with all of the courses on it was included in the registration packet and became very handy when schedules overlapped. No matter what your profession, this conference had something for you (Hoffman, 2004). Andrew Hoffman Missouri Milk, Food, & Environmental Health Association First of all, I have to say how great I thought the annual NEHA conference was. You all put together a terrific program--so much so that I had difficulty choosing between sessions. The exhibits were fantastic. The keynote speeches were great. I especially enjoyed Martin Buser's talk about teamwork. He was an excellent speaker. I could go on and on. What a great conference. Joanne Cox Office of Policy, Planning, and Evaluation NCEH/CDC
