In July 2013 the AIHA Board of Directors approved the implementation of a content strategy to prioritize the development and delivery of content to meet member and customer learning needs and to achieve organizational priorities and financial objectives (see Barbara Dawson’s President’s Message in the August 2013 issue of The Synergist).
The content strategy will focus on developing an organization-wide program of work and ensure that it is timely and relevant. The strategy will keep us focused on what is important and help us bridge the gap from where we are to where we need to be to make sure we are equipping IHs to work effectively into the future. To better illustrate this, we developed a short presentation that provides an overview of the content strategy.
As part of the discovery phase of the content strategy, AIHA commissioned an environmental scan to identify trends and issues that will impact the occupational and environmental health and safety profession in the next three to five years. The results of the environmental scan, in conjunction with input from AIHA members, volunteer groups and local sections, was used by the Content Portfolio Management Team as they developed recommendations to prioritize our content development.
The AIHA Board of Directors approved these recommendations in July 2014. We will be working closely with our volunteer groups as they incorporate these content priorities into their planning for the next few years.
Moving forward, the Content Portfolio Management Team will be developing content priority recommendations on an annual basis. As part of that process one of the key considerations is input from our members. We have developed the following survey to gather your input on the results of the environmental scan. Your response is very important to us and will be used to help inform AIHA content development decision making. Thank you in advance for your participation and feedback.
