As a candidate for the Vice President of Finance, I would like to share my thoughts and experience as to why I am the best candidate to serve as your Vice President of Finance. As a long time ASSP volunteer leader and having run my own business since 1995, I feel I have gained the knowledge and experience to successfully manage finances that would benefit serving ASSP well in this capacity.
ASSP is a strong organization in service to safety, health and environmental professionals globally, and it is the Members: the people that bring strength to our Society. As Regional Vice President of Region 1, and in serving within a multitude of Society, Regional and Chapter level positions, I have had the humble opportunity to be part of shaping and forming the direction of ASSP into the future. At each of these levels, I have served in some type of financial capacity. Along the way, there have been hard decisions to make to ensure our financial stability while providing the resources needed to support the needed resources and contribute to positive impacts for our Members.
As a volunteer leader it is important to balance financial responsibilities while ensuring a positive membership experience and contribute toward the opportunity for growth. The Vice President of Finance serves to ensure the financial stability and viability of the ASSP now and into the future. I welcome the opportunity to serve as your Vice President of Finance: thank you for your vote.
