“CIEH- with you throughout your professional life” – the 2015 Annual Meeting event
June saw more than 140 members gather in London for the CIEH’s Annual Meeting, which was held at the 15Hatfields venue.
The event took place on Thursday 11 June and on the day the formal welcome was made by the CIEH’s new President, Tim Everett, followed by keynote speaker Gavin Atkins from Mind, who explained the mental health charity’s approach on how mental wellbeing and public health are closely linked together.
A further keynote speech from the President himself followed, on the contribution environmental health professionals can play in promoting mental wellbeing in their communities and in the workplace.
CIEH Chief Executive Graham Jukes then spoke about the Environmental Health Futures (EH Futures) programme, as well as confirming to the audience that this would be his last Annual Meeting in the role of Chief Executive.
After the speeches, the formal Annual Meeting took place which included a discussion of the 2014 Annual Report and voting on two motions. The first of these concerned proposed changes to the Charter and Byelaws which allow the CIEH to create Registers of Chartered and non-Chartered Practitioners. The other motion was on the topic of support for CIEH accredited university courses. Both motions and the Annual Report were approved by the members.
After the formal meeting, attendees enjoyed a buffet lunch and then a host of workshops discussing diverse subject matters, such as how to find the next career opportunity and the direction of membership in the future. For more details, see our presentations and workshops page.
The CIEH would like to thank all who attended and contributed to yet another successful Annual Meeting.
