January 2024 – President’s Message

As we delve into the brisk December air, I’m excited to share the incredible success we’ve enjoyed with our last three monthly dinner meetings. The energy, enthusiasm, and knowledge-sharing at these events have been truly inspiring, and they serve as a testament to the strength of our NJAIHA community. Below are just a few recent successful events.

  • November 16th, 2023: We hosted two speakers, Bernard L. Fontaine, Jr, CIH, CSP, FAIHA speaking on Respirable Crystalline Silica and Asbestos Exposures in Manmade and Natural Disasters, and Mark Drozdov, MS, SSM, CUSP, CES, EnvSP, speaking on Using Leading Safety Indicators To Improve Safety and Health Outcomes. Our meetings are not just opportunities to network and connect with fellow professionals but also valuable sources of knowledge and insights into the ever-evolving field of industrial hygiene.
  • November 30th, 2023: we virtually hosted our Professional Development Conference (PDC), a day filled with valuable workshops and presentations to help you enhance your skills and knowledge. It was another excellent opportunity for professional growth.
  • December 1st, 2023: the 2023 Northeast Industrial Hygiene Conference & Exposition (NEIHce) was held at the Hyatt Regency Princeton on December 1st. The response was overwhelming, with the host, Metro NY AIHA scrambling to accommodate extra attendees to the sold-out event. This conference was a remarkable gathering of professionals, featuring cutting-edge presentations, networking opportunities, and the chance to discover the latest trends in industrial hygiene.

In closing, I want to emphasize that your involvement in NJAIHA is what makes our association thrive. Your expertise, your camaraderie, and your passion for industrial hygiene are what drive us forward. I’m looking forward to seeing you at our virtual and in-person meetings in the New Year.

Thank you for being a part of this dynamic community, and I can’t wait to celebrate our shared successes and aspirations in the coming weeks.

Richard A. Lynch
President, NJAIHA
