“CIEH- with you throughout your professional life” – the 2015 Annual Meeting event
This year’s Annual Meeting Event is again expected to fill the 15Hatfields venue with members keen to find out what is happening with colleagues around the country and what CIEH is doing on their behalf.
The Annual Meeting takes place halfway through the CIEH’s business year, and so it is an ideal time for members to get an up-to-date progress report on the big issues facing the profession. This gives all of us the opportunity to consider what action we can take together to raise the profile of the environmental health contribution within our communities.
This year, we especially want members to actively support and contribute to the profession as it moves forward, building on our strong foundation of public health protection, but also encompassing innovation and embracing the community and commercial aspects of environmental health.
There will be two keynote presentations – the first on mental health and wellbeing exploring how environmental health supports vulnerable people within our communities. The second is on environmental health futures and how the profession will meet the challenges of the years ahead. The presentations will be followed by the Annual Meeting itself.
After lunch we have workshops on topics as diverse as CIEH Membership 2020 – services for your professional needs; CIEH student support package; finding your next career opportunity; are we a learning profession?; are we a friend of the human race? Health for our future- CIEH Manifesto; TIFSIP the new approach to food sector interest; how environmental health supports other organisations.
Members will also be very welcome to meet face to face with key CIEH staff, and take the opportunity to network with colleagues old and new. Our own Membership Network of Regions, Branches and SIGs will feature strongly throughout the day. Find out what is happening in your area!
The Annual Meeting Event is totally free of charge to members, including refreshments and a light lunch, and includes 4 hours of core CPD.
We would advise booking to secure your place as soon as possible for the whole day’s event, as last year we exceeded 200 delegates!
