In addition to the executive roles I play as a senior staff member with AIHA, my role as Managing Director of AHIA Registry Programs has been a bold, accelerated, innovative journey into advanced concepts in workforce credentialing and specialty professional microcredentials. We started in 2010 on a journey into uncharted territory and retained The Communicators as our guides, map makers and facilitators. They are thought leaders in all areas of certification, accreditation, registries, and initiatives that create entirely new business models, as we did with the Registry Programs. Environmental scans, market analysis, stakeholder collaborations, and rapidly-evolving communications were all part of the total service package we performed with Georgia and her amazing team. In 2013 ASAE selected Georgia and I to presented the big story and details behind the AIHA Registry Machine at the ASAE Great Ideas Conference.AIHA represents a broadly defined and tremendously diverse industry – industrial hygiene. With The Communicators expertise and get-it-done style, that was a great match for our Registry leadership and subject matter work teams. Together we created programs which are tiered, with registries for specialists who have developed expertise outside the profession’s core competencies and for operators or technicians who have acquired specialized skills pertinent to the EHS professions.
