PLATFORM STATEMENT

I am so proud to be involved with ASSE as we have grown past 35,000 members and excelled in important areas such as the new Body of Knowledge provided by Society.  We have seen the best EVER PDC celebration in Chicago for our 100 year anniversary where we achieved the MOST ever attendees, the largest EVER number of vendors and the BEST ever celebration gala. In Denver, we again exceeded our expectations with another record breaking number of exhibitors.

In Region III, we have begun the road to recovery with a successful PDC held at the Hurst Conference Center where we achieved our goal to provide a quality program to our members.  The speaker venue was received by attendees as the best they have encountered, even when compared to the Society PDC.  Our recovery will continue with the planned Student Leadership Conference scheduled for April 2013. 

Our future depends on those we are grooming to take over as volunteers to our Society.  Providing quality student leadership programs is one way to assure that we have qualified members ready to take over those positions within our Chapters, Regions and Society being vacated by retiring members.

If elected, I will strive to assure that Region III continues the road to recovery through quality programs and effective leadership.  We will use the successful PDC held in Hurst as a stepping stone to the next successful program as we advance our message to protect our people, property and the environment.
