It is my belief that Regional Vice Presidents (VPs) ensure the effectiveness of the ASSP vision through the development of the Region’s Chapters, Sections and members. The Regional VP is responsible for helping chapter volunteers to ensure financial, membership, and ASSP resources are present to support our membership. The Regional VP should be the standard for demonstrating ASSP values of integrity, service, teamwork, excellence and ethics to all members.
In this role I will endeavor to work with the Region 1 chapters to assist, develop, implement and maintain ASSP priorities that allow each Chapter to attain its potential.
My primary mission is encouraging a forum for safety and health professionals to network and interact to continuously improve the quality of the Region’s worker safety/health protection and regulatory compliance.
I have thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity and my time serving in leadership roles at the Region, Chapter and Section level. These positions have helped me better understand the needs of our ASSP membership, and as Regional VP I wish to serve and assist all of the Chapters within our Region.
Though collaboration and sharing of our experiences, together with our excellent team at the National, I wish to help expand on our accomplishments and further our successes.
In summary, I would like to provide assistance to our chapters so we can work together to continue the great work our region has achieved. I am very excited to have the opportunity to serve as the Region 1 Vice President and am asking for you vote and support.
