The NORA Public Safety Sector Council is one that will provide an update of its programs and plans at the partnerships meeting.

NORA Partnerships Meeting Set for June 29

Updates from NIOSH leaders and about half of the sector councils are included. Participants can watch online or listen to a teleconference, but the latter is limited to 50 participants.

A June 29 meeting that is open to the public is a great opportunity for safety and health professionals to find out what's going on and what is coming up from NIOSH's National Occupational Research Agenda (NORA) process. Updates from NIOSH leaders and about half of the sector councils will be included.

Participants can watch online or listen to a teleconference, but the latter is limited to 50 participants.

The "Partnerships to Advance the National Occupational Research Agenda (NORA)" meeting is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. EDT and end at 3:30 p.m. on June 29 at Patriots Plaza, 395 E St. SW, Conference Room 9000. All are welcome, but NIOSH's announcement in particular invites organizations of national scope to participate, including employer groups, unions, trade and professional associations, and foundations.

The NORA Manufacturing, Public Safety, Services, and Wholesale and Retail Trade Sector Councils will provide updates on their activities and plans. The Mid-Decade Review of NORA, the NORA Symposium 2011, and the NIOSH Economics Program also will be discussed, with time allotted after each presentation to discuss partnership opportunities.

Participants are asked to register for the free meeting by sending an e-mail to noracoordinator@cdc.gov containing the participant's name, organization name, contact telephone number on the day of the meeting, and preference for participation by Web meeting or in person. An e-mail confirming registration will include the details needed to participate in the Web meeting.
