At the end of the day, safety is about people. As an ASSP member, you endeavor to manage hazards and risks in your workplace, and improve health and safety. You do this by developing people, building skills, modeling positive behaviors, and improving the adaptive capacity of your workforce so that your team members are able to safely rise to the challenges of surprise and change in the workplace.
As the Region IV Vice President, I want to share a vision to build with you:
- Chapters which are strong and vibrant, by building on opportunities for developing our next generation of safety leaders;
- Educational opportunities to help our members improve soft skills and sharpen business acumen, helping to increase the perceived value of the safety professional in organizations; and,
- Leverage opportunities to elevate and improve the value of ASSP and chapter membership through networking, educational opportunities for student members, and a focus on the member experience.
I look forward to the opportunity to work with you as your Region IV Vice President and continue the work of building an organization of which we are all proud to be members.
