Thank you for the opportunity to be considered for the Assistant Administrator of the Consultants Practice Specialty. I have spent my entire career as a safety consultant, first in the insurance industry and now as the owner of a safety consulting company. This gives me a strong understanding of the needs of our members. I understand that consultants need strong safety expertise, but also expertise in marketing, selling our recommendations, and other business skills. We also look for opportunities to network with other safety professionals.
But I understand that these needs of our members change over time, like in these pandemic times! And I understand that our membership is diverse. Some of us are employed by large consulting companies, some by small companies, and some are independent. We specialize in different industries and different technical disciplines.
As a Practice Specialty leader, I promise to inquire about these diverse needs and do our best to develop webinars, resources and other services to address them.
Thank you, I would appreciate your vote!
