Get Elected, Develop as a Leader

Leadership opportunities within your organization may be limited — which can slow your career growth and advancement. However, ASSP provides alternative leadership avenues for members, who then benefit from a vast professional network, leadership training opportunities, and access to insights on the latest safety trends and innovations. This can position you for new responsibilities at work and create new opportunities for career growth.

Elected Leadership Positions

Often, getting involved at ASSP simply requires raising your hand and volunteering. Other times, it requires being elected by your peers. ASSP members must be elected to serve in the following leadership positions.
