President’s Message – January 2018

Jan 08, 2018

Happy New Year Everyone!

As Safety Professionals, it is our job to protect people, property, and the environment. On top of that, we want to advance the Safety Profession!

But, how do we do that? I believe that we start by improving ourselves!

Moreover, the South Texas Chapter is here to support you! In the upcoming year, we will be providing our members more professional development opportunities for leadership, networking, and conferences!

In fact, our Chapter Elections are coming up soon and would like to encourage each of you to think about volunteering for a Leadership position. Please let Stan Gregory or one of the other Officers know if you are interested in the next couple of weeks. In the next month, we will be finalizing open positions and putting together the ballot.

This year, I encourage you all to take a new training course, volunteer for a Leadership position, attend a conference, and/or even earn a new certification!

I look forward to serving you all in the New Year!

President, South Texas Chapter
