2017 Annual Training/Meeting

October 12, 2017

Dear Radiation Professionals and Interested Colleagues:

Please join us for the 48th Annual Meeting of the New England Radiological Health Committee (NERHC), which will be held at the DoubleTree in South Portland, Maine from Monday November 27 through Wednesday November 29, 2017. We’ve put together a mix of training and technical presentations that will hopefully benefit you all. One full day of response training from two of the country’s first Radiological Operations Support Specialists (ROSS) that will give an in-depth view of the newest response tools and guidance from several agencies. The full (draft) agenda and registration form are attached.

Our conferences generate serious interest from some great vendors, too. They will be there with us during the meeting, and we hope you will find some useful gear and guidance meeting with them. Please make your hotel reservations before October 27 at the DoubleTree (800-560-7753). Reference the Maine Radiation Control Program to get the $106.00 government room rate. You can check the hotel out at:
