The American Industrial Hygiene Conference & Expo is always one of the high points of the year for those of us in the industry - a great chance to see old friends and meet new ones, learn new things and grow professionally, and connect with potential new partners and vendors.
Here are the three things I am most excited about for this year:
1. Reconnecting with old friends
The national conference is always a great way to catch up with colleagues. You might be attending your college’s alumni party, running into a familiar face in the expo hall, or backing into someone you know at the start of the annual MSA party. But unless you’ve been living in a hole, you’re bound to see someone you know!
2. Finding information on your current professional conundrum
Every year, the variety of information on IH issues offered at the convention is impressive. You can always find some information on whatever problem you are currently trying to solve. Poster sessions, roundtables, presentations or professional development courses all provide opportunities to gain new insights. And if none of those options help, you can always start asking questions along “University Row” where many of the smartest people in occupational research can be found.
3. Attending a technical tour for local industry
To make it on these coveted technical tours, you need to sign up early. Tours this year include Boeing manufacturing facilities, a tour inside the University of Washington, and visits to local wineries. Although many tours are sold out, you can always create your own private tour. Stop by the Information Booth to map out an afternoon or evening of fun to take advantage of the abundant opportunities in the beautiful Puget Sound area.
We hope to see you there--come by and visit us at booth 1031!
