New Procedure for AIHA Website Login
In late September, AIHA converted to a new association
management system (AMS). One of the changes brought
about by this conversion is that members have a new user ID
and password for accessing portions of the AIHA website.
To access restricted content, members must enter their e-mail address in the “user ID” field on www.aiha.org and their
AIHA member number in the “password” field.
Membership Renewal Notifications to Be Online Only
As part of its effort to adopt greener, more efficient
processes, AIHA® has changed to an online-only membership
renewal notifications process. The change takes effect in October 2009 with the first 2010 renewal notification e-mail.
Eliminating paper membership renewal notifications is expected to increase efficiencies and save time for AIHA office
staff. And without the expense of sending paper dues invoices through the mail, the new process will also be more
To avoid delays in receiving renewal notifications, members should make sure that their e-mail address is updated in
AIHA membership records. Members can update their e-mail
address through the AIHA Member Center at www.aiha.org or
by contacting AIHA Member Services at (703) 849-8888 or

AIHA® Mourns the Loss of Senator Kennedy, Tireless
Advocate for Worker Safety and Health
Upon hearing of the death of Senator Edward “Ted” Kennedy,
who passed away August 25, AIHA offered its condolences to
the Kennedy family and commented that occupational health
and safety has lost a strong supporter who will be hard to replace. AIHA President Cathy L. Cole, CIH, CSP, said that
throughout the years Senator Kennedy has been a friend to
both AIHA and the profession of industrial hygiene.
Cole stated, “Senator Kennedy put worker health and safety
above politics. He worked tirelessly to deliver the necessary
laws to help achieve our mutual goal: to provide workers and
communities a healthy and safe environment and prevent
occupational disease and injury.”
Cole cited one example of Senator Kennedy’s most recent
efforts to improve worker health and safety—his introduction
of Senate Bill 1580, which would increase penalties for employers
who were not diligent enough in protecting their workers—as
well as his goal of seeing that every employee in the United
States was afforded coverage under the OSH Act.
“It will be difficult to replace someone with Senator
Kennedy’s passion for worker health and safety,” Cole continued.
“AIHA, employers, and employees should all work to take
worker health and safety more seriously. With Senator
Kennedy’s efforts, we made great strides over the years. He
will be sorely missed.”
