The Northern California Chapter of the Health Physics Society (NCCHPS) is a widely recognized non profit professional organization of more than 200 members dedicated to the development, dissemination, and application of scientific and practical means for radiation protection. The NCCHPS is a tax-exempt educational organization which supports the safe use of radiation in research, medicine, and industry. Our membership draws from professionals involved in research, industrial, medical, and commercial applications of radiation in the greater Northern California area. Our Affiliate Members represent NCCHPS sponsors from the manufacturers of radiation protection instrumentation and providers of radiation safety services. The chapter is affiliated with the national Health Physics Society of more than 6,000 specialists in radiation safety.
The chapter sponsors educational opportunities for the local community and for students. It also established and continues to fund the Burton J. Moyer Memorial Fellowship, publishes a newsletter and membership directory, and provides information on the potential risks of radiation relative to the benefits. The NCCHPS holds five professional dinner meetings each year with invited speakers. The NCCHPS also maintains a website that provides information about the meetings, membership, Affiliate Members and their businesses, committees, newsletters, the Moyer Fund, and other sponsored activities. The NCCHPS website provides links to the national Health Physics Society and our Affiliate Members’ websites.
The dinner meetings average 40-80 health physicists and radiation safety experts from the public, private, and university sectors from the Northern California area who are involved in all facets of radiation protection. The dinner meetings are usually held in September, November, January, March and May each year in a banquet room of various Bay Area restaurants. The speakers at these dinner meetings represent most recognized names in radiation protection in Northern California. The typical meeting schedule is:
Up to three Affiliate Members may be highlighted at a particular dinner meeting (included in the annual membership fee of $500) to exhibit their products and services and have more one-on-one time with NCCHPS members. Some of our meetings are joint dinner meetings with the Northern California sections of the American Nuclear Society (ANS), the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) and the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA).
A special event is the May meeting which is dedicated to manufacturers of radiation protection instrumentation and providers of radiation safety services. Our Affiliate Members have the opportunity to exhibit their products and services and to meet the decision makers in the field. During the social hour the meeting attendees have the opportunity to get acquainted with the latest products of the Affiliate and to discuss their needs. Each Affiliate has an opportunity to present his or her products. An Affiliate-sponsored raffle contributes to the success of the event. Exhibiting at the Affiliates’ night is a cost effective way to make sales calls and introduce your company and your products to the people who are most likely to need them.
