If elected for the position of Region IX Vice President, I will practice my experience in HSE and strive to raise the benchmark which is remarkably well-established and well-settled by the former region vice president. I will raise the level by working diligently with the talented area directors, chapter presidents and leaders of all the sections of the Region IX including experienced ASSP ambassadors through engaging in constructive activities with persistent hard work for not only the region’s progress and prosperity, but also for the pride of the Society as a whole with an inspirational vision for the future with close communication about the achievements and also of challenges faced, if any, to learn and overcome them without exhausting our resources elsewhere.
If I am elected for this position, I am determined to excel the Region IX further to incredible triumphs by not only encouraging current ASSP members but also by promoting ASSP and its tremendous achievements globally, to attract and reach out to all HSE practitioners around the globe, providing them reasons to join ASSP and motivate for a safer workplace environment. Furthermore, as the current President of the Pakistan Chapter and Deputy RVP, I have good insight and understanding of the responsibilities of the RVP position. This is a great opportunity for me to engage in taking up the challenge of RVP for Region IX.
