Today's environmental, safety and health professional is faced with an ever mounting number of dynamics in order to be successful in protecting workers and the environment. Safety professionals need access to education that prepares them for the challenges of today and can anticipate their needs in the future. As Council VP-Professional Development, I will seek ways in which ASSP can continue to be nimble to meeting the professional development and educational needs of our members. I will look to create better access to member developed content to our regions and chapters. I will continue to pursue quality of content for our members to trust they are receiving the most up-to-date and accessible content. I will look for ways to ensure emerging professionals can build competencies crucial for success in their industries. Finally, I will continue to uphold the values of the CoPD which strives to provide programs which emphasizes knowledge sharing, skill-building, and networking.
My prior experience as the Professional Development Conference Chair has prepared me to take this next step. I have been challenged to shape the educational content for the annual conference, which is no easy feat considering the vast body of knowledge available to our members. I feel this experience provide me the best possible opportunity for success in the Council VP-Professional Development role. Thank you for your consideration.
