Martin Keeley (pictured), a Chartered Environmental Health Officer working for East Dunbartonshire Council, has won the competition open to all members to be nominated for a delegate’s place at the 9th World Congress in Environmental Health being held in Dublin in June of this year. Martin will accompany the two official delegates travelling, namely the President, John Stirling and the Senior Vice President, Bernard Forteath.

The REHIS Council had decided to repeat the idea of sending a delegate to the Congress, from among the membership by inviting submissions to be made on why they should be chosen.

The previous winner was Drew Hall of Inverclyde Council, who got to attend the event when it was held two years ago in Durban, South Africa.

As part of the conditions for participating, the winner has to agree to provide a written report to appear in the REHIS journal.
