President's Message


The last party I attended was an engagement party in March 2020. Half the people didn’t show and over half the conversation was about coronavirus. The following Thursday, March 12, many of our area’s Industrial Hygienists gathered for the CIHC/AIHA-SVS Summit and sat socially distanced. That was our section’s last in-person meeting.

It’s been almost a year and I’m finally optimistic that normalcy will creep back into our lives. Tonight (Feb. 16) I heard Dr. Fauci say most adults will be vaccinated by late May or early June. What does this mean for our IH community? What will our local AIHA section look like in the coming year?

For the first half of our year, we’ll surely have to continue to connect over Zoom. Then, I hope to return to some in-person meetings. Here’s what I hope our AIHA-SVS year will look like

· June 16, 2021 – A local section Zoom meeting and technical presentation

· Late August / September – technical tour and social event (in-person)

· October 5– joint event with Sacramento ASSP

· December 14, 2021 – Annual meeting and technical presentation at One Speed

My goal for our section this year is simple: keep our membership healthy and connected.

I welcome your ideas for how to keep our members engaged. If you’d like to get involved, please reach out.

Sincerely,

David Hornung, MPH, CIH
