APHA 2012 Section Elections Coming Up!

Attention all IH Section members! APHA’s 2012 section elections are coming up next month, so please keep an eye out for e-mails from APHA, and check your spam folders. The text of a recent e-mail from APHA’s Francis Atkinson can be found below.

Dear APHA Member:

The American Public Health Association’s 2012 Section elections are quickly approaching and we are excited to continue offering you the opportunity to vote online. The elections will begin June 29, 2012 and will end on July 30, 2012. On June 29, you will be sent an e-mail notification letting you know that your election is open. The e-mail subject line will read “APHA Voting Information Enclosed”. Please do not delete this e-mail.

APHA has set up an election webpage that we encourage you to visit to view the election vacancies for 2012. Please click on the following link to be directed to the election page: http://www.apha.org/membergroups/sections/2012electionvacancies

Your e-mail notification will include:

* Your online election validation number
* Your APHA membership ID number
* Voting instructions
* A direct link to your voting Web site

All you have to do is click on the direct link and VOTE!

If you choose to vote online, please be assured that the site will be secure and you will have the same level of privacy and anonymity as if voting by mail. The system will prevent anyone from voting more than once.

As a member of APHA, your involvement in the selection of your leadership is an integral part of your Association’s governance. We encourage you to take part in this year’s election.


Frances Atkinson, MSM
Director of Component Affairs

  1. Enjoyed your post!
    My organization, the American Society for Nutrition, is hosting a conference on food, health, and nutrition science in the Chicago area later this month. We have a limited number of free media passes available for bloggers. Please let me know if you’re interested in attending the event at no cost. The program features a keynote address by Dr. Dean Ornish on Friday, June 22; additional details: http://www.nutrition.org/meetings/clinical. Please email mktgintern@nutrition.org if you are interested in attending or have any questions.
