WEHA Leadership Award - Receive a Stipend to Attend NEHA

Have you ever wanted to attend NEHA, but did not have the ability or resources? WEHA offers annually a stipend for one member to attend the NEHA Annual Educational Conference (AEC). This is an ideal opportunity for any environmental health professional to attend a national conference. As NEHA reports, the AEC is so much more than a conference. It is the nexus for environmental health training, education, networking, and advancement. It is the event environmental health professionals attend to acquire practical and real-world information and expertise.

The recipient of the stipend will be reimbursed the costs associated with attending the conference such as round-trip coach airfare, lodging, registration expenses and additional expenses as approved by the Board of Directors.  The purpose of the stipend is to encourage participation and leadership within WEHA or the Environmental Health profession.

To be considered you must answer all three of the questions. Please note that there is a limit of 5,000 characters. The nomination will be graded per the information that is provided on the application. The individual selected must be a NEHA member or join NEHA prior to registering for the conference.

Submit your application by the end of business day on January 18, 2019.  An e-mail will be sent to confirm that the application form was received.  It is anticipated that selection will take place by January 25, 2019.
