Interested in Attending
Here's why AIHce EXP is the right conference for you!
Thinking about joining us at AIHce EXP this year in Phoenix?
From its humble start in 1961 when AIHA and ACGIH sponsored a separate conference for industrial hygiene professionals, the annual AIHce event has been a fixture within the IH community. The first conference in Detroit, Michigan, saw more than 700 professionals and exhibitors gather together to share research, connections, and camaraderie.
As the occupational health & safety (OHS) profession has evolved, so has AIHce EXP. It's now considered a must-attend event for those OHS professionals needing quality education and networking to stay on top of the latest research, technologies, methodologies, and more in the global public health and safety arena.
So the answer to the above question should be a resounding "YES!"
The variety of educational events at AIHce EXP gives you opportunities to keep up with developments in your professional area of expertise, introduce yourself to new issues arising in the changing global workplace, and learn about IH/OEHS topics outside your primary focus. While it's necessary to maintain your job skill set, consider attending sessions on topics you know less about, which may provide context for issues you deal with daily or expose you to new solutions.
AIHce EXP 2023 is also a chance to prepare for CIH recertification. Through attending education sessions, conference participants can achieve up to 18 certification maintenance hours (with more pending) throughout the three days, with proof of participation required to receive credit.
If you miss a session, AIHce EXP OnDemand, a service that provides recordings of most AIHce EXP sessions, will become available in the weeks following the conference. OnDemand sessions come included with full registration and offer additional CM credits.
Professional development courses (PDCs), which occur in the days before and after the conference, afford even more learning opportunities. Most PDCs also teach IH/OEHS topics. Still, a few provide instruction on human skills (soft skills), such as leadership, communication, and conflict management, which may help you be a more effective IH/OEHS professional.
Many professionals have missed in-person networking opportunities during the pandemic. Aside from education, AIHce EXP 2023 offers attendees a chance to connect with other IH/OEHS professionals. Meeting your peers may help you find job or research opportunities, increase your visibility in the profession, build confidence, and gather information about how your field works, such as what employers look for or what skills are essential in which focus areas.
Whether it's your first or fiftieth time attending, the breadth of AIHce EXP's offering guarantees something here that matches your professional need. From networking to the latest research, from special behind-the-scenes tours to the annual AIHF Fun Run, from students experiencing industrial hygiene for the first time to seasoned retirees brimming with institutional knowledge to share, these can all be found during the three days of this premier conference for OHS professionals worldwide.
