We take safety and health seriously and continue to closely monitor guidance from public health officials as COVID-19 cases remain a concern across the country. All meetings of our Board of Directors, Society councils and committees, and regional operating committees will be held virtually through March 31, 2021.
As separate entities, our chapters and their leaders must exercise best judgment in making their own decisions, and we strongly recommend they follow Society-wide guidance. Doing so will enable ASSP to achieve a safe and healthy operating environment across the entire organization. We understand the frustrations and disappointments caused by this extended pandemic, but we know a unified approach to protecting the safety and health of our members will lead to a quicker return to in-person meetings and larger gatherings.
We thank all of our members and volunteer leaders for their dedication to safe practices and adherence to Society recommendations. We encourage you to contact your chapter directly with questions about local ASSP activities.

Virtual Education and Events
To best protect the safety and health of our instructors, attendees, members and staff, we have shifted in-person courses and events to virtual experiences through March 31, 2021. This includes our 2020 Future Safety Leaders Conference in November and SafetyFOCUS 2021 in February. We take public safety and health seriously and recognize many potential attendees also work for organizations with travel restrictions.
Our goal is to continue to offer you the highest quality educational resources to meet your evolving needs during the pandemic and beyond. We appreciate your continued involvement in ASSP during this challenging time.
Follow Physical Distancing and Hand-Washing Guidance
While face coverings are prevalent throughout the country and required for entrance into many establishments, physical distancing and hand-washing remain the key measures to slowing the spread of COVID-19. Please maintain at least six feet of space between you and others, and wash your hands frequently.
We Will Keep You Informed
