The oil and gas industry is now in the midst of turbulent times and these troubled waters has formed lasting effects on the HSE professionals who support the industry. As we will emerge from the downturn, there will be many new safety professionals entering our industry who will want us to give them the direction necessary for success and help them avoid some of the hard lessons we learned in our careers. It is with a deep sense of honor and commitment that the nomination of the position for Assistant Administrator of the Oil and Gas Practice Specialty gives me and if elected, I will make every effort to welcome new members to the practice while encouraging open communications with all members.
