Currently, there is a lot of change occurring within our profession, especially in industrial hygiene. We are beginning to see massive waves of professionals retiring whom have not passed the baton onto the next upcoming generation of professionals. Creating a massive gap that will take time in closing. With the stresses of uncertainty, as a professional it's refreshing to know who to go for when in need of assistance. Part of that is being available as well as staying up with the times as technology continues to advance.
I am passionate about industrial hygiene. As a practice specialty, there is so much knowledge and a wealth of information from all who are involved and participate with the group. I think it's important to spread our group's name, activities, involvement, and events. So that our members can know where to go for their industrial hygiene needs. Technology can assist us with that. With the support of ASSP, our group can continue to grow and redefine our group's presence. While continuing recruiting methodologies, I envision an Industrial Hygiene Practice Specialty group that can grow, sustain the ripples of the professions uncertainty, and continued educating and helping our ASSP members understand the intricacies, value, and science behind industrial hygiene.
I come forth bringing my passion of helping people and industrial hygiene, as well as my personality and characteristics, to lead and serve the ASSP and the Industrial Hygiene Practice Specialty group. I think my leadership can be strengthened with this opportunity to become the Assistant Administrator. I look forward to working with ASSP and the Industrial Hygiene Practice Specialty.
