AIHA Receives Grant to Grow Outreach Program in 2017

In honor of its award-winning IH Professional Pathway™ program, AIHA will receive a coveted Innovation Grant from the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) Foundation in 2017. The grant is provided by ASAE's Innovation Grants Program (IGP), which supports innovation exploration and development in order to help raise awareness about innovation efforts within the association community.
The IH Professional Pathway program is a comprehensive member outreach and public awareness program that was developed and launched by AIHA in 2016. The $10,000 innovation grant will allow AIHA to expand the IH Professional Pathway program by developing more outreach materials in 2017, including a documentary on industrial hygiene and a graphic novel, which will bring the program's “career characters” to life.
"We are incredibly proud of the IH Professional Pathway program's success thus far,” said AIHA Marketing Manager Ben H. Rome, who had a large role in the development of the multi-faceted outreach program. “Industrial hygiene is critically important to people everywhere; these professionals save lives and keep workers safe. We are excited to keep the momentum going through this grant."
AIHA will be publicly recognized at ASAE's 2017 Great Ideas Conference in Orlando, Fla., in March and during ASAE's 2017 Annual Meeting, which will be held Aug. 12–15, in Toronto, Canada. As an award recipient, AIHA's proposal abstract for its IH Professional Pathway program will appear in an e-publication highlighting all 2017 IGP awardees.
