I believe in and promote the mission of ASSP to support and better our profession. It is our responsibility, as volunteers, to bring as much education, networking, and opportunities to succeed to our membership as reasonably possible. We must encourage and support students in entering the safety profession and help to nurture them in their career path.
As an Area Director, it would be my goal to support all four chapters in their efforts to be successful and thriving chapters. I shall be available for assistance as needed. I shall keep them aware of ASSP initiatives and reporting deadlines. It will be my goal, within ASSP guidelines to visit each chapter at least once per year to consult and assist.
As Area Director, I shall assist and support the Regional VP in goals and initiatives and be available as needed and/or requested.
