Central Texas Chapter 
A Message From Your President Rebecca Vera

Hello, my fellow Central Texas members! I cant believe its already November. This past year I  served on our TEHA board as a GC member  where I was able to participate in the planning and implementing the Annual Educational Conference (AEC) held this Oct in Austin, TX. I had an absolute blast.  I highly encourage you to attend at least one AEC.  This year, I get to continue to serve TEHA repping our chapter as President.  
Our chapter is hosting our annual Holiday Workshop on Friday Dec 13, 2019 at the San Marcos Activity Center located at 501 E Hopkins St and is FREE to our members*includes lunch.  Register online for FREE before Dec 5th to save your spot. Must show your current TEHA membership card at the door. 
 This year we have partnered with the San Marcos Animal Shelter and are collecting donations. In exchange for a donation of dog, cat or small animal supplies you get a raffle ticket for a chance to win a $50 VISA gift card. The animal shelter has its own wish list at www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/Is/3C5SJVR104SB7/ref=cm_go_nav_hz 
Our chapter has a few vacancies to fill on our governing council so go VOTE ONLINE for our President Elect and VP. Voting will be available from Nov 1- Nov 13, 2019. If you would like to join our Governing Council we will have 2 open vacancies at this meeting. Nominations should be made in person at the registration desk with voting taking place same day. New GC staff will be announced at the end of our workshop.
 Look out for our spring event on April 30- May 1, 2020 hosting 2 tracks of OSSF and General Environmental Health/Food. More details to follow. We are always looking for speakers with diverse environmental health topics if you have any suggestions send them over to me.
