What Are ASSP Councils and CommitteesGettyImages-609408202_super

ASSP’s councils and many committees are the governing bodies that, along with support from ASSP staff, spearhead the many initiatives, programs and services that benefit our organization, support our members and advance the safety profession as a whole.

Why Serve on Our Councils and Committees

In addition, serving on our councils and committees is an excellent way for you to grow into future ASSP and industry leadership roles.
