Thank You, ASSE Volunteers!
Volunteer leadership is the backbone of ASSE. During this National Volunteer Week, we say, "Thank you for all you do!"
We applaud your passion and encourage you take a well-deserved bow.
Because we wanted to know what inspires our members' involvement, we conducted a poll and discovered that these four elements are key:
A commitment to “paying it forward”
Having a voice in the future of the safety profession
Networking with peers
Honing their leadership skills to succeed at work
Read the top 10 list of things that inspire ASSE volunteers in the EHS Works blog. And be sure to read Professional Safety's interview with ASSE President-Elect Rixio Medina, who encourages all members to participate when asked.
“It is gratifying when someone asks you to participate,” he says. “When someone recognizes in you some desired attributes for serving the Society, then is willing to help you achieve your potential, that is a powerful motivator.”
Getting involved is also a great way to build and practice new skills. "By engaging in different activities within ASSE, you will gain skills that directly transfer to your workplace,” Medina explains. Read the full interview.
