Platform Statement

Greetings Members of Region IV! 

I am excited for the opportunity to run for a second term as your Region Vice President.  These are exciting times for ASSE and I am honored to be part of its leadership.  While times are difficult for many of us, ASSE remains a tremendous asset to safety and health professionals around the world.  From career and networking opportunities, to Professional Safety, standards, technical publications, and the Body of Knowledge, to premier educational and leadership development events, to shaping the future of occupational safety and health – the member volunteers and staff of ASSE are busy making sure we get the absolute most from our memberships. 

It is because of these efforts that ASSE is so successful.  With this success comes great responsibility – to manage our growth, to respect the diversity of our members, chapters, and regions, to have a clear vision for ASSE, to set sound strategic goals, to routinely communicate with (talk to and listen to) our members, and to govern transparently.  It would be my great honor to be your voice within the Board of Directors and carry out these responsibilities.
