President’s Message – October 2016

Posted: Sep 21, 2016

We have two key service opportunities that our chapter member’s can be a part of this March and June.

Please consider volunteering for the Annual CareerExpo & SkillsUSA Event taking place on March 17 &18. Our chapter has pledged to support the OSHA Sustainable Workforce Alliance and the March CareerExpo is our most important support activity. This event focuses on encouraging the youth of our community to consider a career in safety.

The second opportunity is to be an “ambassador” for our chapter at the June ASSE conference. Many of you have already committed to serving as a moderator or greeter. However, there are still plenty of openings remaining. As the host chapter for this event, we hope that the attendees from other parts of the country will get a taste of Georgia hospitality.

If you are not plugged in to either of these events and want to learn more, send me an email.

President’s Message – July 2016

Posted: Jul 11, 2016

A new year is beginning for the Georgia Chapter and, as incoming president, I want to take this opportunity to thank the many chapter members that made the 2015-2016 year a success. First, I would like to thank all of the people that have been so active in supporting the chapter during the previous year, including members of the board, committee members, presenters, and all others who volunteered their time and efforts. I also want to thank all members who were involved in the just- finished Professional Development Conference in Atlanta. Members of the chapter did an excellent job in numerous roles, including greeters, tour hosts, and session moderators. I especially want to extend a personal thank you to everyone that participated in helping ASSE to prepare for the PDC. Finally, I would like to thank David Brani for his excellent leader as president during the year.

For the upcoming year, I want to challenge those who have been actively involved in the chapter to continue do so, and would encourage those who have not been active in the past to consider becoming more involved. Our chapter has always been one of the best, and we will be looking for ways we continue this tradition. If you have any ideas for ways of improving the chapter, please let one of the board members know. We will be looking for input on speakers and topics for our monthly meetings, community involvement and outreach, local technical and social networking opportunities, and any other suggestions you may have to make our chapter a truly platinum organization.

I look forward to working with all of our members, and if anyone has any questions, comments, or suggestions, please contact me at nhoward@chubb.com or 404-266-4146.

Due to members like you, our ASSE Georgia Chapter serves our community in a variety of ways. For many years we have been an active participant in the Georgia Youth Alliance. This OSHA Cooperative Program has been transformed into the OSHA Sustainable Workforce Alliance. This new alliance will continue to provide resources for the protecting the health and safety of youth workers.

President’s Message – October 2015

For the last two months, those that read the President’s message prior to the meeting were eligible for a special drawing. For this month, the only reward is what you gain from reading the message. I figure some of you, out of guilt, will continue to read on.
