The branch is still currently looking for someone to lead our Branch newsletter the Tartan, it is open to all members. It is really good opportunity to be involved in our branch. It will be fully supported by our executive within the branch, providing the content, you just have to put it together.

Finally, I would like to congratulate our colleagues at the Department of Health and Wellness on the announcement of three new Public Health Officers which strikes a new chapter for Environmental Public Health in Nova Scotia.

Hello Fellow CIPHI Members,

Well our AGM and Professional development session is drawing closer. Please note that we have chosen to extend early bird registration until April 23, 2014, so that we can have some final numbers and most can take advantage of the early bird registration rate. We have also included an agenda for the day, for those that have been wondering about it, we just finalized it the past few days.

Also I have attached the Branch Education Award. Please note that we have not had any application for the award, so please consider nominating one of your branch colleagues for the award.

Also if some of you folks are unable to attend, please send allow your proxies to a member that is able to vote on your behalf.
