Words from the 2016 San Diego President

 Hi Everyone!
As we travel past the halfway mark of 2016, let’s take a moment to reflect on what we’ve accomplished together as a local section. It is the mission of the San Diego chapter of AIHA to provide a safe and inspiring community for our local Industrial Hygiene and Occupational Health Professionals. We want to provide resources that help you solve problems at work and advance professionally. We also want to provide opportunities to meet and network with other members in our area and share concerns and best practices on a local level.
So far this year, we have met as a group to learn about OSHA Chemical Management and PELs, Hearing Conservation and Asbestos; our group was represented at the Festival of Science and Engineering at Petco Park; we created a newsletter to make it easier to keep in touch with the Board; and we implemented a credit card payment system for the meetings (small victories count!). If you joined us during those first six month, thank you!
Moving forward to the second half of the year, we have several opportunities to learn, network and come together as a professional community. Stay in touch with us via our brand new website that goes live in July. Join us at the September Professional Development Symposium, where we will have presentations on the aging workforce and silica/combustible dust.  We are also trying to get fun events together at a brewery and cruise ship.
Our professional niche is a small one. Let’s use this group to lean on one another and have fun.
Yours in health,
Katie Johanski
