President's Message - Kyle Vogel
School is back in session, temperatures are beginning to cool off, and leaves in the Rockies are starting to change color. Summer is nearing its end, and as fall approaches, so does our annual technical conference! I would like to thank all of our volunteers for their efforts to make this year’s Fall Technical Conference happen. We have a stellar lineup of speakers and vendors and hope you will join us for two exciting days of learning and networking with EHS professionals from across Colorado and Wyoming.
We will be unveiling the new logo that was chosen by our members at the conference. For those that are unable to attend, we will follow up with an email shortly after the conference with details. Additionally, updates to our bylaws all passed and will take effect starting this month. Thank you to everyone who participated in the polling, and for sending your comments, which were used to fine-tune updates to the bylaws and logo.
Along with the Fall Technical Conference, our local section has some excellent events coming up, including a Lunch and Learn in October that will take place in Cheyenne, WY, a 2-hour Ethics Course in November, and of course our annual Holiday Party in December. We value input from members and are always interested in hearing your thoughts and ideas about how we can improve or introduce new events for the local section. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any ideas you have!
Finally, we have opened nominations for the IH of the Year award that is presented annually by our local section. If you know an AIHA-RMS member deserving of recognition for their contributions to our field, please take the time to nominate them. Submitting a nomination does not take much time, and it is a wonderful way to show appreciation to those that have dedicated so much of their time and effort to the EHS field. Watch for an email with a link to the nomination forms the week of the conference; the award will be presented at the Holiday Party.
Be safe and enjoy these remaining weeks of summer. Keep an eye out for details of upcoming AIHA-RMS events – I hope to see you at one of them soon!
