Certificates of Merit

Winners of Certificates of Merit, two women standing among sitting attendees during the AEC.Each affiliate in good standing is invited to designate one of its members and/or a team to receive a Certificate of Merit from NEHA, thereby nationally recognizing one of their own for outstanding contributions to the environmental health profession. Each affiliate may nominate a single individual if the affiliate president is an active NEHA member. Recipients are announced in the Journal of Environmental Health. Only a single Certificate of Merit document is given to the team (individual copies for all team members will not be awarded).

Note: NEHA board policy states that only affiliate presidents who are active NEHA members may nominate candidates for Certificates of Merit.

The 2021 application period has closed. Affiliates may submit certificate nominations to be honored in 2022 beginning in late 2021.
