President’s Message: September 2019

Sep 04, 2019

I am delighted to welcome you to the 2019-2020 North Carolina Chapter year of the American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP)!  Our Chapter Planning Committee and the Professional Development Conference (PDC) Committee have both been working through the summer months to improve your experience with our Chapter and to implement some of your suggestions given to our member survey last year.  Our Program Chair, Pat Ragan, deserves many thanks for leading the committee to develop a lineup of technical meetings and locations to hold them at – starting out in September when we head east to meet at the facility of Fresnius Kabi USA in Wilson, NC.  Join us to hear the presentation on “What is a Confined Space? Performing the Confined Space Determination” by W. Jon Wallace, CSP, MBA, President of Workplace Safety and our Chapter Past President.

Also, together with the PDC Committee, Pat has also lined up a 1-Day PDC to be held October 24th in Raleigh.  Check out the details on our Chapter website and sign up now to attend.  0.7 CEUs will be granted:

Consider also attending the 33rd Annual Region VI PDC on September 18-20th in Myrtle Beach: Link to Region VI PDC.  I look forward to seeing you at our meetings this year! Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or suggestions to make our chapter work better for you.
