HFES Readies National Ergonomics Month Plans

The society is inviting events and contest entries as it prepares to mark NEM 2009 during its 53rd Annual Meeting, which will take place Oct. 19-23 in San Antonio. Shown here is the society's NEM logo.

Only two events were listed as of Monday on the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society's National Ergonomics Month site. But there's still time for a local or student chapter or individual member to submit an event and to enter the 2009 NEM Best Action Plan Contest by sending a Word file listing contact information, participants' names, title and description of the plan, timeline, goals, and target audience to raegan.m.hoeft@lmco.com. The deadline for entries is Sept. 1.

Awards will be presented to the best individual, local chapter, and student chapter action plan during HFES' 53rd Annual Meeting, which will take place Oct. 19-23 at San Antonio's Grand Hyatt Hotel. The meeting's program includes an NEM session from 4:45 to 6:15 p.m. on Oct. 19.
