NCLEHA Membership


Annual Conference -- The annual conference and business meeting are held concurrently with the National Environmental Health Association (NEHA) Annual Conference for a savings in time and costs to many of our members.

Management Ideas -- At our conference, attendees are exposed to state of the art management and administration topics. Opportunities exist both at the annual conference and through the NCLEHA Newsletter to share ideas and concerns with fellow environmental health administrators.

Public Representation -- Members of NCLEHA are chosen to serve on a number of advisory and technical committees for groups such as NSF, APHA and NEHA. NCLEHA advocates local policy concerns regarding federal and state actions, legislation, standards and proposals and offers expertise based on local issues.

Recognition -- Awards, recognition and leadership opportunities are additional advantages of joining NCLEHA.

Peer Interaction -- NCLEHA provides the opportunity to discuss issues, review ideas and compare notes with peers from across the nation. If you have access to e-mail, NCLEHA has its own listserv for members to ask and receive information from each other.
