2021 AEC Goes Virtual

The National Environmental Health Association (NEHA) has continued to closely monitor developments of the COVID-19 pandemic since its inception earlier this year. After careful deliberation, the NEHA Board of Directors has made the difficult but necessary decision to transition the face-to-face 2021 Annual Educational Conference (AEC) & Exhibition scheduled for July 12-15, 2021, in Spokane, Washington, to a three-part virtual series.

Developing details regarding the NEHA 2021 AEC Three- Part Virtual Series will be posted on the 2021 AEC website as they become available.

“As the health and safety of our members, presenters, exhibitors, attendees, partners, and staff is our highest priority, the NEHA Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to transition the 2021 AEC & Exhibition to a virtual three-part series. While I am disappointed we won’t have the opportunity to see our friends and colleagues in person, I feel certain NEHA has made the right decision. I have full confidence that the NEHA leadership and staff will develop this three-part virtual series to be as valuable, educational, and interactive as past AECs. I look forward to participating in this new learning and conference format,” stated Sandra Long, NEHA president.
