Practice Specialties - Consultants


The Consultants Practice Specialty (CPS) has helped contribute to the profession by providing technical assistance in a variety of areas, both as external consultants to their clients and as internal consultants to their organizations. CPS strives to serve its members by keeping them abreast on technical information and providing information about the unique demands of running a business (i.e., marketing, accounting, insurance, etc.).


The Consultants Practice Specialty is sponsoring several sessions at Safety 2017. Click here to see the complete list. Be sure to put them on your calendar.
