Platform Statement

The Vice President of Finance will continue to be a key Board of Directors position as our Society continues to evolve its operations under a new governance structure. As ASSE continues to become a global society, we need to understand our financial constraints while implementing initiatives to sustain the quality of our services. We also need to be willing to invest in new approaches to offer increased value to our ever diverse membership.

ASSE must continue to invest resources back into our members through leading edge initiatives such as the Risk Assessment Institute. Practice Specialties, standards development and training opportunities all continue to allow our members to show increased value to their employers.

We need to evaluate the needs of our student and young professional members, as well as our more seasoned members, in order to ensure we are offering opportunities and initiatives for all experience levels. We need to look to the future and see what emerging issues are on the horizon and invest the resources to prepare our members to deal with these issues. As our members are asked to do more that is outside the realm of traditional safety, we need to offer resources to strengthen their knowledge in these nontraditional areas. We need to look for opportunities to reach more of our members and provide them with nontraditional ways to benefit from the wealth of resources and services within ASSE. We have many members who have never utilized our resources – we need to reach them and understand how we can get them engaged. I am excited to have the opportunity to meet these challenges and to work with society and the Board of Directors to ensure continued financial security while allowing the society to enhance member benefits.
