Chapter President’s Message

We Need Your Help!

Thank you for taking time out of your day to visit the website for the Chesapeake Chapter of the American Society of Safety Professionals.  While not long ago, the ball dropped on New Year’s Eve and we rang in 2023, for the governing body of the American Society of Safety Professionals, we are more than 2/3 of the way through our chapter year and it is time to start planning for the 2023-2024 year!  We need your help!

In the next few weeks, all chapter members will receive an email regarding the upcoming chapter elections.  Elected officers include; President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, and Director.  Each position requires the officer to volunteer between 2 and 10 hours per month, and all elected officers serve one year terms.  In addition, the elected President appoints a chair for the following committees; Chapter Professional Development Conference, Programs, Membership, Nominations and Elections, Awards and Scholarships, Communications, Government Affairs, Professional Organizations, and WISE (Women in Safety Excellence).  The appointed committee chairs then add volunteers to their respective committee.

Now is the time to step up, get involved, and truly embrace the many benefits that the American Society of Safety Professionals has to offer!  The Chesapeake Chapter is one of the most active chapters in the nation, with monthly chapter ‘hybrid’ lunch and learns, and multiple social events that take place during the day and in the evenings.  In addition, the chapter partners with the American Industrial Hygiene Association’s Chesapeake and Potomac Locals for one of the most highly attended professional development conferences in the region.   If you are interested in running for any of the elected positions, volunteering to serve as a committee chair, or assist by becoming a member of any of our committees, please reach out to me directly.

Regardless of the commitment that you are able to make, your assistance is needed and appreciated.   Thank you for taking the time to visit the website for the Chesapeake Chapter of the American Society of Safety Professionals.  I hope to hear from you soon.
