Read all about it!
While NEHA communicates with its members 10 times each year through the Journal of Environmental Health (JEH), our printer's lead times mean that the Journal cannot always provide time-sensitive information about association activities. So I am pleased to report that NEHA has now established a system to provide timely and open communication with each member. This new tool is NEHA E-News, a monthly newsletter that comes to you via e-mail. During the past two months, members already have begun receiving NEHA E-News.
The goal is to provide you with a little more information about the inner workings of your association, so that you have a better understanding of them, can more easily participate, and can take advantage of the many opportunities NEHA has to offer. My vision for NEHA E-News is that once a month you will receive an e-mail telling you about activities going on within the association, some hot environmental health issue, NEHA's involvement at the federal level, or just some useful information that may help you do your job better and more easily.
I believe you should know that NEHA board members and NEHA staff are attending national meetings and federal government meetings on your behalf, pursuing the advancement of the environmental health profession, and seeking opportunities for NEHA members. You should also be aware of other activities and opportunities NEHA provides. I hope that NEHA E-News gives you further insight into what NEHA is doing both for you and for the environmental health profession, further demonstrating the value of your membership.
We understand the value of your time, so we will only provide you with a brief synopsis of information in each issue, with links to further details. If you desire more information, you can simply click on the links.
We now have about 3,000 e-mail addresses of NEHA members, and we are sending NEHA E-News to all of them. If you are a NEHA member and have not received NEHA E-News, please go to www.neha.org/member/update/ to sign up. We hope to get all members subscribed to NEHA E-News soon.
You can reply to NEHA E-News mailings, and we will keep track of the replies we receive, so as to tailor the newsletter to your needs and interests. There is nothing better than two-way communication and dialogue. Of course, if you do not want to receive this e-mail, you can unsubscribe. If you unsubscribe, though, you risk missing opportunities to participate in and benefit from your association.
A NEHA membership is more than the JEH or the AEC; it is also about the NEHA board and NEHA staff working for you every day, working to fulfill NEHA's mission: "to advance the environmental health and protection professional for the purpose of providing a healthful environment for all." Read all about it in NEHA E-News.
