Platform Statement

It is my honor to accept the nomination for a second term as your Region III Vice President.  I am excited to have the opportunity to build upon what we started in 2015 and return Region III to the Premiere Region within the ASSE.

It is important as a Society to not only improve our efforts in recruiting new members, but finding areas where those members feel comfortable volunteering and contributing to the greatest professional organization in the world.  Region III leads the way in the development of its Student Sections.  The 2016 Region III Student Leadership Conference at Oklahoma State University was the best the Region has ever hosted.  We need to continue to develop and support our leaders of tomorrow, today.

Although faced with some initial challenges upon being elected, your Regional Leadership Team had a very successful first year.  We turned a Professional Development Conference that struggled to break even in 2015 into a self-sustaining conference in 2016 by contracting with a new conference planner, developing a strong team of volunteers and enhancing program content and attendance.  Region III finished in 2nd place in the Safety Matters Campaign which means $20,123 is guaranteed to go to members of our Region to help with Professional Development.  Region III was also the first Region to have every chapter recognized at the bronze level or higher.

We have built a very strong Leadership Team within the Region and as your current Region III Vice President, I ask for your support and vote to continue the progress we are making to enhance the value of our National Society and Region III activities to our members. I have, and will continue to, listen to all of the members within Region III and will do my best to support you and our Society.
