The Fellow designation was established to recognize AIHA members who have been full members in good standing for 15 years of continuous membership and have made recognized contributions to industrial hygiene or related disciplines, either through research, leadership, publications, education, or service to AIHA. The Fellow designation is limited to no more than five percent of the membership. These individuals have been nominated by a local section, committee, special interest group, or other formal AIHA entity for their recognized achievement in the field of industrial hygiene. Individuals are approved as Fellows by the AIHA Board of Directors after recommendation by the Awards Committee.

Only those who hold the Fellows designation may join this SIG.
