Do You Have an Opinion? Call for Debaters at AIHA Fall Conference

Posted August 2, 2017

For a second year, the AIHA Fellows Special Interest Group is sponsoring a Breakfast Discussion Debate at the AIHA Fall Conference on Leadership and Management. During this lively session, six preselected debaters will each have five minutes to present their views on a topic of importance to AIHA and the profession. Debaters will be divided into two groups, with each group taking one side.

This year’s debate will address whether AIHA should remain a “specialist” organization focused on the IH core competencies or if it should become more of an EHS “generalist” organization, broadening its scope to encompass more EHS topics.

If you are interested in being considered as a debater, please email a 100- to 200-word statement of interest to AIHA’s Thursa L. Pecoraro. Be sure to include in your statement your background and experience as well as which position you favor and why.
