AIHA volunteers are generous with their time, talent, and expertise in the development of education, programs, products, and services that support the OEHS profession and advance the AIHA mission. By celebrating and reflecting upon the altruistic spirit of the volunteer community, we strive to recognize our committed volunteer leaders who make it all possible.

If you are part of a volunteer group that doesn't have an established named award, now is your chance! Join other AIHA volunteer groups in celebrating volunteers, who with their unique talents, skills, and knowledge, help us achieve our mission and goals for healthier workplaces and communities.

Here's a quick guide on how your volunteer group can establish its own named award (PDF).

Important things to keep in mind:

  • The volunteer group named awards will be presented at the volunteer groups' annual meeting, typically held in conjunction with AIHA Connect.
  • Recipients will be acknowledged via the AIHA Connect conference guide.
  • To establish a NEW Volunteer Group Named Award, rename a current award, or change a current's awards descriptions/qualifications, submit all relevant information to the Membership staff by February 1.
  • The volunteer group should submit the name and complete contact information for the award recipient(s) to the Membership staff no later than February 15 to meet conference-related deadlines.
  • Membership staff will prepare and deploy the official congratulatory letter, as well as prepare a certificate for presentation purposes.
