Build Your Leadership Skills: Get Involved in ASSE
Are you looking for new and interesting ways to build your skills, meet new people and make a difference in the OSH profession? ASSE is a great place to do that.
We are looking for members interested in participating on one of our many volunteer committees. We have opportunities in all areas, including member communities, education, standards and advocacy.
“ASSE has a lot to offer to its volunteers,” says 2017-18 ASSE President Jim Smith, M.S., CSP. “In my opinion, if this is the profession you want to be good at, you must get involved,” he says. “You will meet some of the best in our business.”
Members like Darryl Hill, Ph.D., CSP, Linda Tapp, CSP, and Thom Kramer, P.E., CSP, certainly agree. "Volunteering has given me the opportunity to make a difference to the Society and to elevate the profession," says Hill, an ASSE Fellow and past Society president. For Tapp, vice chair for the ASSE Foundation, getting involved helped her tap into a great network of expertise. Her advice to members? "Take a risk. Put your hand up." Kramer, Vice President of the Council on Professional Development, echoes that sentiment. "Put yourself out there and help move the ball forward."
