We take member feedback seriously. On our last member needs survey, we asked how AIHA could better serve members in their professional roles. Members responded with valuable information on their expanding workloads and having to do more with less, as well as ways we could support their needs. Here are some of the things members asked for and how we've addressed them to date.
An Updated Website
We launched an updated website last year. The homepage was refreshed to focus on the most important information, the navigation was reorganized into core areas that members most often look for and the site was redesigned to be more mobile-friendly. All of these features are designed to help you find what you're looking for quickly whether you're at your desk, in the field, or on the go.
More Convenient and Affordable Education
We continue to make significant enhancements to professional development. In the past year, pricing on distance learning programs have been adjusted to provide you the best science-based education at a competitive price. In addition, the AIHce Virtual Conference
, launched last year, has been expanded to offer attendees a choice in what sessions they participate in. The AIHce Virtual Conference
is a great option for professionals whose schedule and/or budget does not allow them to travel.
A Redesigned Synergist Magazine
AIHA's commitment to being the best source or science-based industry information is evident in The Synergist
, which is consistently rated as a top member benefit. Beginning with the January 2014 issue, we launched a new design for The Synergist
. Along with the new look, coverage of state and regulatory developments, as well as industrial hygiene program management is being expanded. The need for increased coverage in these areas was a key result from last year's member needs assessment.
Salary and Compensation Survey
Staying current with industry trends is critical to your ability to protect worker health, but it's also important for your own professional advancement. AIHA recently completed a comprehensive salary and compensation survey of the profession to allow you to compare your compensation to the market.
We've also developed an online salary calculator
which allows you to customize your search criteria, giving you a personalized salary report based on your specific qualifications. The online salary calculator
has the most accurate information available to evaluate your own compensation and is an exclusive member benefit.
Our Work Continues
We continually ask members about their needs and the value of membership and we welcome any and all feedback so we can further support your role in protecting worker health.
