Each CPC member serves a term of three years. Terms are staggered to assure that one third of the Committee members are new each year, and terms begin and end at AIHce.
Start: 2/16/2017
Deadline: 3/31/2017

​This group advises the AIHA board and staff regarding the association’s body of content on industrial hygiene and occupational and environmental health and safety. It also provides strategic oversight of the content development agenda for AIHA, suggests topics for the AIHA Guideline Foundation’s research agenda, reviews proposals for new content development initiatives, and monitors the industry landscape to identify emerging topics on which new content is needed.​

Each member serves a three-year term. Terms are staggered so that four members of the committee rotate off and are replaced with four new members each year. One committee member will be an AIHA board member appointed to a three-year term by the AIHA president. Terms commence and end at the CPAG meeting at AIHce. Each year, the AIHA president selects a Vice Chair from among those committee members entering their second year of service. The Vice Chair becomes the Chair in their third year.
Start: 2/16/2017
Deadline: 3/31/2017
The Groups That Are Part of the AIHA Family
From volunteers to related organizations, there are a lot of people that help make up the AIHA family. These smaller, more focused groups are often the oil that keeps the AIHA machinery running.
AIHA has the following organizations under its umbrella: 
  • Volunteer Groups - Industrial hygienists and other occupational health, safety and environmental professionals volunteer their time, energy, and expertise through AIHA’s volunteer groups.

  • Local Sections - Membership in a local section does​ more than just keep you informed—it provides you with a total spectrum of activities that enhance your professional growth, while promoting the occupational health and safety field.

  • Students and Early Career Professionals - AIHA is committed to reaching out to young professionals pursuing careers in industrial hygiene and other occupational and environmental health and safety (OEHS) professions. Whether you're a student exploring the field of industrial hygiene or a young professional recently starting your professional journey, AIHA will be there for you.

  • Future Leaders Institute - The Future Leaders focuses on strengthening the leadership skills of young IH professionals and is designed for young professionals with less than 15 years of work experience.  The next Future Leaders Institute will be held in 2018 in conjunction with IOHA.  Information about how to apply for the 2018 Future Leaders Institute will be forthcoming.  Future Leaders Institute is made possible by the support of AIHA and donations from past FLI Alumni and AIHA members.  Donations to support the program are tax deductible as allowed by law. 

  • Special Interest Groups (SIG) - AIHA members can serve on a number of special interest groups that help to disseminate the AIHA mission statement to AIHA members, the OEHS community, and the general public.

  • Outreach - AIHA's outreach efforts include various awards and honors for professional members, outreach to students who are pursuing degrees in IH who could be members of AIHA, and opportunities to be a mentor or to be mentored.​

  • AIHA Guideline Foundation - the AIHA Guideline Foundation is dedicated to de​veloping and dissemin​ating occupational and community exposure guidelines for chemical and physical agents and stressors.

  • AIHA Standards Activities​ - The goals for AIHA standards development are to ensure that AIHA obtains and maintains an appropriate level of involvement or leadership in industrial/occupational hygiene-related standards globally and to encourage broader participation by AIHA in the development of international IH/OH standards while supporting and strengthening the existing domestic standards development efforts.
