Platform Statement

ASSE is, without question, the strongest Safety and Health organization anywhere.  This is because of the strong local chapters in ASSE throughout the world.  Very clearly, strong chapters make for a strong Society.  For many members, their local chapter is ASSE, and ensuring that each local chapter has the resources necessary to succeed is paramount.

It has been my privilege to serve as one of the inaugural Area Directors within Region V.  My proudest moments have been seeing the seven chapters within the Area collaborating and sharing best practices.  Each of these chapters have strengths, and it’s been very rewarding to see everyone share what makes their chapter great and the subsequent improvement.  This success was obvious with six of the seven chapters receiving recognition at the Gold level or above the past two years.

As the Region V Vice President, I would continue this collaboration among both Areas and all 15 chapters throughout the region.  I would work for what’s best for all chapters and to promote the profession for all members.  Strong members will result in strong chapters, areas, regions, and an even stronger Society.
