The Michigan Environmental Health Association (MEHA) is a volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to the improvement of health through management of the environment. We provide our membership with forums of exchange and access to information relating to environmental health issues. MEHA promotes high standards in the environmental health profession and strives for recognition as a scientific group that provides services and protection for the general welfare of the public. MEHA advocates the registration and licensing of its members.
MEHA membership consists of nearly 300 professionals throughout the State of Michigan. We are employed in local, district and state government, within private industries, institutions, colleges and universities.
Members influence environmental health policies through the on-going work of various committees. MEHA represents the membership on state government task forces, rule development and planning committees.
MEHA offers a variety of conferences every year. The Annual Education Conference (AEC) is held every spring. In addition to the AEC, a Wastewater Conference is provided the first of every year. The Swimming Pool and Recreational Waters Conference is provided in the spring, just prior to the swimming season.
Becoming a member of MEHA is easy. The membership page will show all of the membership levels available.
Do you know of a MEHA member who has retired?
If so, they may be eligible for “Emeritus Membership.” You can submit that member’s name and bio to the Executive Board and request their membership change from Active to Emeritus status. Remember, Emeritus members do not pay dues and have the same privileges as an Active member.
According to our Constitution and By-laws, to be eligible you must be a MEHA member for a minimum of 10 years and have worked in the profession at least 20 years but are retiring from the EH professional service on account of age or disability. Reciprocity may be granted for documented service in other affiliates of NEHA or IAFP.
