Platform Statement

I’m excited about the opportunity to run for the Region 6 RVP position. It’s a chance to add some real value to our membership in Region 6, to network with some of the best in the business, and to support and lead our volunteer chapter teams.  I started as an active ASSE member, and I have continued to enjoy serving the Chesapeake chapter & Region 6 in a variety of different capacities.

Most recently, during my term as chapter president, I set challenging but achievable goals for our chapter through a clearly communicated strategic plan. With great respect for our past history and with an eye on the future, we carried out our plan to maintain & grow the strong foundation that had been passed to us. We improved  our service to chapter members  through better use of available technologies (upgraded  our website, launched our Facebook page, started our LinkedIn group, launched a twitter page, set up a chapter g-mail  address, and provided  webinars to better  serve our more distant members); enhanced communication about the current  happenings  through social media giving a 3-6 month  view of our upcoming  events; more value-added  and timely  event selection including  social events & technical tours.
