Nomination Deadline Approaches for ABIH Director Positions
The American Board of Industrial Hygiene (ABIH) administers the internationally recognized Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH) program.
We invite Diplomates to join this group of committed industrial hygiene professionals by submitting their nomination for consideration by the June 15th deadline.
The due date for self nominations for two Board of Director positions at the American Board of Industrial Hygiene is just a few weeks away. Interested and qualified candidates have until June 15 to submit their official Nomination Packet.
The Board Selection Committee will then review all candidates who have successfully submitted their information for consideration later this summer. At the September Board Meeting, two candidates will be elected to fill the positions.
The Board of Directors is currently comprised of eleven Diplomates (ABIH certificate holder) and one public member. The goal of Board composition is to have a broad representation from the professional community. Two to three new Board members are selected each year and each Director serves a four-year term.
The ABIH Board of Directors uses the Carver Policy Governance model, which emphasizes policy-making and strategic leadership in four main areas:
- Ends: what results are to be achieved, for whom and at what cost
- Executive Limitations: staff boundaries for operational/administrative activities
- Board-Staff Linkage: delegation of authority to staff and staff accountability
- Governance Process: how the Board governs itself and is held accountable
“We invite Diplomates to join this group of committed industrial hygiene professionals by submitting their nomination for consideration by the June 15th deadline,” said Lynn O’Donnell, CIH, Executive Director for the American Board of Industrial Hygiene. “The Board meets face-to-face, for one to two days, three times per year. These meetings take place in March, during AIHce, and at the AIHA Fall Conference. The meetings are usually held on a weekend to avoid conflicting with people’s work schedules. Monthly conference calls are also scheduled to conduct business and monitor progress.”
