Final President’s Message: 2018 – 2019

The last 12 months serving as North Carolina Chapter President have went by in the snap of a finger – I simply can’t believe how quickly it has flown by! I want to sincerely thank every member of the Executive Committee for their unwavering dedication and assistance. I honestly believe our executive committee is second to none. Also, I must express my gratitude to Past President Christopher Hinson, CIH, CSP, CHMM. Chris took an already excellent chapter and implemented several improvements to help the chapter earn the highest ASSP chapter designation, platinum, two consecutive years. Chris met with me numerous times to discuss my transition as President. Thanks again, Chris.

Our chapter is in excellent hands moving forward as incoming President Kim Blatz takes the realms on July 1. Kim has served in multiple leadership positions on the executive committee prior to assuming to becoming our new President. I am fully confident Kim will do a fantastic job as President!

Finally, I want to strongly encourage anyone interested in serving in a voluntary capacity to contact an executive committee member. Our chapter couldn’t exist without the continued voluntary efforts of safety professionals – please give back to your chapter.



W. Jon Wallace, CSP, MBA
