Old National Events Plaza will host Indiana Environmental Health Association’s 68th Annual Fall Education Conference, September 24-26, 2018. The organization last hosted their conference in Evansville in 1998.
With a membership over 400+ from all over the state of Indiana, the conference looks to combine education, professional development, and technical proficiency during their time in Evansville. The two-and-a-half-day conference will generate approximately 400+ sleeping room nights.
“We are thrilled to host IEHA’s Fall Education Conference in September,” said Alexis Berggren, general manager, for Old National Events Plaza. “We look forward to welcoming their attendees back to Evansville, a destination that the organization has not met in for 20 years, and I am confident that our community will deliver an outstanding experience that we hope will lead to more meetings and partnership with IEHA in the future!”
Conventioneers traveling all over the state to attend the conference are employed by federal, state and local governments, schools, medical care facilities, industries, trade organizations, solid waste districts and are students and educators of environmental health.
“After many hours of careful consideration, we are pleased to announce Evansville as the home of our 68th annual Fall Education Conference! Evansville offers us excellent opportunities and amenities for our conference and its attendees as well as a chance to see how the city has changed in the 20 years since we were last there. We want to thank everyone who has helped with the selection effort thus far, and thank them for our continued help in making our long-awaited return to Evansville a huge success!” – JoAnn Xiong Mercado, IEHA President-Elect
The annual conference aims to further promote the organization’s mission: to promote, preserve and protect environmental public health in the state of Indiana, and to encourage a spirit of cooperation among all environmental health stakeholders while serving its members in the regulatory, industry, and academic communities.
Indiana Environmental Health Association has planned a full conference schedule in hopes to further accomplish their key goals. IEHA works closely with other Environmental and Public Health Protection Agencies and Departments to control environmental hazards and to attain optimum human health.
