    Greetings,


    The Naval Safety and Environmental Training Center presents the 28th Annual Joint Safety and Environmental Professional Development Symposium (PDS) convening April 6-10, 2020. The PDS is a professional development opportunity for Department of Defense uniformed and civilian professionals to share innovative ideas and new trends and information in areas of safety and occupational health, environmental protection, and industrial hygiene. The event is hosted in an online venue using the web conferencing tool Adobe Connect and is provided at no cost to presenters or attendees.


    The 27th Annual Joint Safety and Environmental Professional Development Symposium provided 100+ educational sessions to more than 1750 registered participants from 50 states, one United States territory, and 23 countries. Participants backgrounds ranged from safety, industrial hygiene, environmental, occupational health, public health, radiation health, occupational medicine, and energy. Please visit http://jointpds.adobeconnect.com/pdsaar2019/ for highlights from last year’s event.


    The conference planning team is looking for claimant meeting sponsors and breakout session presenters. All meetings and sessions will be hosted via Adobe Connect allowing presentations from across the globe. All meetings and sessions will provide users a certificate of attendance documenting continuing education credits earned.

    Claimant meeting sponsors and breakout session presenters will be assigned a PDS point of contact to assist before and during the event. Training on how to use the technology to present content and engage a virtual audience will be provided.


    Claimant meetings provide up to 25 different organizations the opportunity to host a one-day conference on April 6, 2020. This time will allow organizations the opportunity to host sessions specific to their organization. Topics can range from trending issues, updates, training, etc. The meeting sponsor will be responsible for the agenda and content presented during the meeting. All content must be unclassified and releasable to the public. To submit a claimant meeting request, visit http://jointpds.adobeconnect.com/pds2020presenters/event/speaker_info.html


    Breakout Presentations from all government, industry, and academic agencies will be considered. Presenters have the opportunity to reach a large target audience during their virtual session. The 2019 average session attendance was over 80 participants. Presentations may cover anything within the following broad topics:

    • Health and Safety for Disaster Response and Recovery
    • General Safety
    • Operational Safety
    • Occupational Safety and Health
    • Industrial Hygiene
    • Occupational Medicine

    Good Morning Fellow USEHA Members,

    As you know, this summer the USEHA will be celebrating the 50th Anniversary of its existence as an affiliate of the National Environmental Health Association. We will enhance our usual annual Educational Session and Business Meeting by having a reception to celebrate USEHA, its members, and our exceptional contributions to the Environmental Health profession.

    In December, I donated $300 to USEHA (through its website) to support the 50th Anniversary Celebration activities. I challenge you, my fellow USEHA members and EH professionals, to also donate to this cause. Please match or exceed my tax deductible donation; however, any donation amount will be greatly appreciated.

    Please plan to attend the conference this summer and celebrate this monumental USEHA event.

    Thank you,

    Welford
