Invitation to Attend

Dear Colleagues

It is my very great pleasure on behalf of the Symposium Organising Committee and Environmental Health Professionals Australia to invite you to attend our 2017 EHPA National Symposium to be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre in the heart of our vibrant City of Melbourne. The theme for this year’s program is “Environmental Health in a Connected World”, a reminder that we can harness the power of connection to provide better environments for health to our communities.

Connection is such a powerful tool – not just connection with technology but connection with our peers, with regulators and with stakeholders. The Symposium Committee has prepared an engaging and informative program with the three days packed full of best practice examples, emerging issues, case studies and workshops which will connect and inform. The connections formed during the Symposium meal break, workshops, field trips and engaging with our sponsors help us to support each and other can spark innovation in unexpected ways.

On behalf of the Board I’d like to thank the Symposium Committee for all their hard work and dedication in preparing and running Environmental Health Professionals Australia’s premier event for 2017and I look forward to seeing you all there.

Sarah Annells.

President, Environmental Health Professionals Australia
