A Message from CMAHC's Executive Director Kristie Riester:
CMAHC Members and Friends,
Our hearts are still heavy from the sudden loss of longtime aquatics professional and CMAHC Board Member Jim Dingman, who passed away on January 12.
Jim was an extraordinary family man and a great friend with a fantastic sense of humor.
A force in the Environmental Health and Aquatics industries, Jim made countless valuable contributions throughout his 40-year career, most recently as Environmental Health Manager with the City of Plano Environmental Health & Sustainability Department in Texas. Notably, during the inception of the Model Aquatic Health Code (MAHC), Jim led our Disinfection and Water Quality Committee.
In addition to his role on the CMAHC Board of Directors and various other industry leadership positions, Jim was Past President and honorary life member of the National Environmental Health Association (NEHA).
Our thoughts remain with Jim’s family and loved ones during this difficult time. In lieu of flowers, they have asked that donations be made to the NEHA Scholarship Fund
and memories be shared via Jim’s obituary
A celebration of Jim’s life is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 19
. Details on how to attend via livestream are here
At CMAHC, we will ensure that Jim’s legacy lives on in the work we do to support healthy and safe aquatic experiences for everyone, every day.
