Pandhandle West Texas Chapter 
Hello from your Chapter President: Dana Hartman

Greetings from the Panhandle West Texas Chapter!

I would first like to say a huge THANK YOU, and congratulations to our Executive Director Jodie Halter, Governing Council, and Past Presidents for an outstanding AEC. A large variety of topics were covered by speakers that were experts in their respective fields. The exhibitors were very knowledge and had valuable information and giveaways to take back to our departments. If you were unable to attend this year, please plan now to be at next year’s conference. October 22nd-27th, 2018. The knowledge and contacts that you make will be invaluable to your future.

We have had a momentous year with Shaun May at the helm! We completed four trainings before the AEC. I would like to say a personal thank you to him for being a great President, and look forward to working with him as a member of the Governing Council. Shaun has done an excellent job of keeping our chapter moving ever forward. My plan as your president is to keep that momentum going!

We are currently in the process of planning our meetings for 2018. I strongly encourage each and every one of you to have a voice in this process. If there is an area that you would like to see as part of our training, PLEASE feel free to call or email me. THIS IS YOUR ASSOCIATION! We are all in this together.

Finally, I would like to challenge EVERY member to help us increase our strength by finding, and welcoming, new members to our association. Anyone with a career or passion for Environmental Health is welcome!

Looking forward to a GREAT year!
