Vector Control Program Committee
To be a resource for environmental health professionals and NEHA leadership dedicated to developing resources, programs and fostering improved vector control programs to protect public health.
The Vector Control Program Committee is comprised of experts working in partnership to provide outcomes in the following priority areas:
- Identification and recommendations related to resource gaps, needs of the profession, and emerging issues.
- Identification of best practices, successes, and challenges for environmental health professionals in vector programs.
- Guidance, input, and participation in the development of vector resources and projects.
- Promotion and dissemination of NEHA-related-related and committee-developed materials and resources.
The Vector Program Committee may be comprised of local, tribal, state, federal, academic, and private sector professionals with environmental public health and vector control expertise. Program committee members must hold membership with NEHA. Serving on a program committee is completely voluntary but does maintain a 2-year term commitment. Program committee meetings are held once per month, lasting about an hour, and additional work in between meetings, or work on sub-committees may be necessary, not to exceed 2-3 hours per month.
