Welcome to TEHA!
TEHA Presidential Message
Message from the 2013-14 TEHA President Cindy Corley
Greetings Texas Environmental Health Association Members…
59th Annual Education Conference Registration is NOW OPEN!
My how time flies! It is already August, which means that over half of 2014 has come and gone. TEHA has been a very busy organization this year and I can only assume it will continue to stay busy!
The 59th Annual Educational Conference is just a few months away and we have a phenomenal agenda this year! The conference is being held October 6-10, 2014 in Austin, TX at the Doubletree Hotel. Monty McGuffin and his team of moderators have spent countless hours putting together an agenda full of exciting topics for attendees. We are very excited to announce that our Keynote Speaker for the AEC is Bill Marler, the managing partner of Marler Clark, The Food Safety Law Firm. An accomplished attorney and national expert in food safety, Bill Marler has become the most prominent foodborne illness lawyer in America and is a major force in food policy in the U.S. and around the world. Also, we will have a 2-day Certified Pool Operator course this year for those interested in getting the national credential prior to the conference. For more information about the AEC, including registration and hotel information, please visit our website www.myteha.org.
As my Presidency draws to a close, I am excited that I have been able to participate in many different events that have helped to support the professions that TEHA represents. In May and June of this year, TEHA was the lead organization in the effort to retain the Code Enforcement Officer credential in the State of Texas and also to help to re-establish the Sanitarian Advisory Committee in Texas. Both of these items are still not resolved but TEHA is still working closely with the decision makers in an effort to support these professions by preserving their integrity in our state. With the 2015 Texas Legislature drawing near, rest assured that TEHA will be involved in the legislative process to provide testimony and education to our elected state officials concerning areas pivotal to TEHA professionals. Keep an eye out for emails and postings on our website for ways that YOU can be involved in the legislative process as a TEHA member!
Thank you for giving me this opportunity to serve you as President. I know I speak for the entire Council when I solicit your innovative thoughts on ways that we may possibly serve you better.
