Get Involved

We are now ac​​cepting volunteers for the following:

Internation​al Advisory Group 

Provide input and recommendations to the AIHA Board on what our international strategic priorities should be.

Local Section Tas​k Force 

Assess current concerns regarding AIHA's relationship with its local sections, (as identified in the June 2018 Local Section Summit), and provide recommendations for resolving these issues to the AIHA Board.

AIHA Na​med Awards and Honors Committee 

Be a part of selecting the best candidates for AIHA's prestigious named awards and honors!

Standards Advisory Panel (SAP)​ 

Define and lead​ AIHA's involvement in consensus standards setting activities to ensure that the field of industrial hygiene and occupational and environmental health and safety is represented.

Board Nominating Committee​

The AIHA Board of Directors recently revised the Board Nominations Policy to reflect AIHA’s commitment to transparency and diversity. We are now using an open-call process to add four (4) at-large members to the Board Nominating Committee.  We’re looking for people who are active AIHA Full Members and who are committed to helping us find the best nominees for Board officer and director positions. ​Please note that, contingent on the approval of AIHA's bylaw amendments, those currently classified as Affiliate and Associate members will now become Full members and therefore be eligible to apply (hence, the application form does require individuals to specify their current member class).

Thank you for your continued efforts to strengthen the organization and the profession!​​​​​

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.

  • AIHA Foundation - The mission of the American Industrial Hygiene Foundation is to advance the profession by awarding scholarships for students in industrial hygiene and related disciplines.​​
