FALLS CHURCH, Va. (March 1, 2018) — The American Industrial Hygiene Association is now accepting applications for the 2018 Future Leaders Institute, which will be held at the Marriott Marquis in Washington, D.C., Sept. 21-23. The Future Leaders Institute provides critical leadership training and professional development opportunities for industrial hygiene/occupational health (IH/OH) professionals within the first 15 years of their career, particularly those from countries or organizations where such opportunities do not exist.

Attending the Future Leaders Institute is an exclusive professional development opportunity for young IH and OH professionals who want to strengthen their leadership skills. With only 30 spots available, every year young attendees look forward to their chance to participate. Applications will be accepted through March 16, 2018.

“At AIHA we know it is our responsibility to help fill and support the IH and OH pipeline for the future. The Future Leaders Institute is one way we can do this, because the fate of our industry and the important work our members do depends on preparing the next generation,” said Michele Twilley, DrPH, CIH. Twilley is on the AIHA Board of Directors and the Future Leaders Institute Advisory Board.
