Subj: Approval to Attend AIHce 2016

I would like your approval to attend AIHce 2016 in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, May 23-26. This conference is the best opportunity for me to gain the knowledge and insight our organization needs to solve our daily and forward-looking strategic challenges.

AIHce offers a comprehensive menu of industrial hygiene and environmental health and safety education programs—from science, to business management, and everything in between. Below I’ve listed specific sessions that impressed me as being important to our current and future activities.

I realize our budget is tight this year; however, this conference is a solid investment that will result in immediate and long-term benefits. By attending AIHce 2016, I will be able to:

  • Increase efficiencies and productivity, enhance performance to help the bottom line, and maximize our investment by sharing information and knowledge with you and our colleagues.
  • Network with my peers from all over the world to benchmark and learn what they are doing to solve similar problems.
  • Meet suppliers to find the latest tools to help our organization.
  • Earn points to maintain my professional certification(s).
  • Access “AIHce On Demand,” which provides digital recordings of almost all of the conference sessions. This information will be available to share within the organization at no additional cost.

Additionally, because of the diversity of its attendees, AIHce provides unequaled opportunities to foster understanding and develop professional relationships between federal agencies, as well as national and international IH/OH professionals. Attendees include personnel from OSHA, NIOSH, CDC, DOD, the Department of Labor, the Department of State, and more than 40 nations.

AIHce is truly the best, most comprehensive educational investment we can make in our organization all year. Difficult times make it more important than ever that we NOT miss the information and knowledge that can help us build for a better tomorrow.

Thank you for your consideration.
