Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the symposium organising committee and Environmental Health Professionals Australia I extend a warm invitation to you to attend our annual EHPA National Symposium held at the Vibe Hotel located in the beautiful town of Marysville, Victoria.

This year’s event is titled “Environmental Health in a Multifaceted World – learning from the past, planning for the future and delivering for the community” which reflects how environmental health practitioners work with their communities through the good and bad.

The theme highlights the need to continually identify new opportunities and possibilities, expand and establish new partnerships and expand our presence and position to influence and advocate for our profession and the communities we serve.

The program illustrates how as a profession we have responded to significant number of contemporary and emerging issues, bringing together a wide range of skills, experience and perspectives to achieve exceptional results and which open up new possibilities that as a profession we need to embrace.

The program offers two days packed full of high calibre speakers, a wide range of presentations of significant and relevant topics, case studies and concurrent sessions. I wish to acknowledge and thank our organising committee for the exceptional work that they have done and the vitally important partnership with the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS).

As a profession we work to protect our environments for health and to continuously find ways to improve health outcomes. Expectations and demands continue to grow and to meet this demand we must continue to develop professionally. Symposiums such as this provide professional development opportunities to all Environmental Health Practitioners and other allied professionals as well as avenues for networking for all delegates. I look forward to seeing you all there and having an opportunity to share our experiences.
