New Video Highlights Importance of Leadership Skills in the IH Profession

Posted March 6, 2014

In the latest video in the AIHA® Thought Leaders series, Perry Logan, PhD, CIH, past chair of AIHA's Exposure Assessment Strategies Committee and Gas and Vapor Detection Systems Committee, discusses the importance of taking advantage of leadership opportunities in the industrial hygiene profession. Logan urges industrial hygienists to hone their leadership skills by getting involved in the AIHA Future Leaders Institute and the association's numerous technical committees.

"I've found that learning the technical skills is really important in this career, but I’ve also found that having leadership skills is just as critical," he says.

In 2006, Logan received the AIHA Kusnetz Award, which honors certified hygienists under the age of 40 who show promise of leadership in the IH profession. He has provided leadership for the AIHA Future Leaders Institute, the AIHA Fall Conference, and a number of science and technical symposiums.
