Morgan Bliss, CSP, CIH, Administrator, Training and Communications Practice Specialty
Sep 22, 2018

It seems appropriate to celebrate the change in leadership of the Training and Communications Practice Specialty with the changing seasons.

Thanks to Michael Coleman for his two years as our administrator. I learned many aspects of volunteer leadership from him and wish him well in his future ASSP endeavors. Let's also welcome Marilyn Hubner as our Assistant Administrator.

We have an excellent and engaged volunteer Advisory Committee. Help us round out that group by volunteering to serve as our professional development chair. Let me know if you're interested in this role.

I invite you to attend our next two virtual Advisory Committee meetings:

  • Oct. 11, 2018 | 1:00 p.m. - 1:40 p.m. (PST)
  • Dec. 13, 2018 | 1:00 p.m. -1:40 p.m. (PST)

Contact me to participate.
