Region V Vice President Candidate
Scott Huberty, ARM
Scott Huberty, ARM, is loss control supervisor in the Minnesota Office of Meadowbrook Insurance. He is responsible for strategic development and implementation of loss control and risk management service plans for members of the Self Insurance Groups that utilize Meadowbrook’s loss control services. On a daily basis, he works with the loss control staff to provide risk assessment, safety training and consultation services for individual
companies that participate in these funds.
Scott is active in ASSE. He has served two terms as president of the Northwest Chapter and participated on a Society committee. He is also a frequent speaker for trade associations and safety conferences, and has been interviewed on area radio programs. Scott is married and has four adult children.
My view of the safety profession is from the consulting perspective. With over twenty years' experience in insurance loss control I have witnessed how critical it is for safety professionals to connect with others. Whether it is a Fortune 500 Corporation or a "mom & pop" family business, safety professionals stagnate if they do not absorb essential elements like technical development, mentoring, networking, and moral support. Without exposure to fellow professionals in a group like ASSE, we can become "isolated islands" and can grow dissatisfied / bored, fall short of our personal objectives, and not meet our employers' expectations.
ASSE is a great prescription to avoid those afflictions, yet I find it amazing how many people in the safety profession are unaware of the benefits of ASSE membership! The sixteen US chapters, three sections, eight student sections, and the Egypt Chapter of Region 5 represent the most immediate "touch points" for safety professionals to receive and share these essential elements. I believe the region level of ASSE plays a key role supporting the Chapters and Sections in their efforts at promoting and achieving the Society's mission.
As Region 5 Vice President, my desire is to build on the momentum that exists in our region and work towards increasing the value we can offer the Chapters and Sections. I would apply experiences, creativity, and ideas I gained in my seven years serving on the Northwest Chapter Executive Board and use creative ways to help the individual Chapters achieve success.
