The Annual Meeting is full of opportunities for students and early-career professionals. Make the most of your experience by preparing for the meeting before you arrive.
Prepare for the Virtual Meeting
Since APHA 2020 will be the first-ever Virtual Annual Meeting and Expo, plan to attend the Navigate and Network orientation session. You will learn ways to maximize your time at the meeting and network like a pro. You'll also learn about highlighted, must-attend sessions and events taking place.
Career Opportunities and Networking
- Prepare your resume ahead of time to share with prospective employers and career coaches.
- Check out career opportunities at the Public Health CareerMart and visit the Virtual Expo to learn which hiring companies are planning to exhibit.
- Set a goal to meet at least five new people every day. Exchange information and follow up after the meeting.
APHA will host an Early-Career Professionals' Roundtable Session (details to come). You don't want to miss this opportunity to meet with public health leaders.
All student members are part of APHA's Student Assembly — the nation's largest student-led organization dedicated to furthering the development of public health students. If you're not a member, join to build your network, save on the meeting's registration fees and more.
APHA's Student Assembly hosts a number of sessions and events during the Annual Meeting. These events are a great way to meet other students and APHA leaders. Don't forget to add Student Assembly sessions and events to your schedule.
