PRESIDENT’S LETTER

Greetings Chicago Safety Pros!

Today is a special day for me. I celebrate one year with my company, marking my first full year as a tried and true safety pro. In this short time, I have been thrilled to share the knowledge gleaned through a tough but well-earned Master of Public Health program completed months prior right here in the City of Chicago. On the flipside, I find myself humbled by the many things I didn’t know; like the multitude of ways that my clients operate, the varying challenges they face in implementing workplace safety (or lack thereof), and how to connect with some in the understanding that, when it comes to workplace safety: we are all in this together.

It is because you all share the same principle of support and togetherness that I believe that several of you answered the call to become an officer on the chapter executive board. As a result, I would like to be the first to introduce Josh Asiedu as 2nd Vice President of the Greater Chicago Chapter and welcome Julia Carmen Castellon who succeeds to the 1st Vice President!  Your chapter is grateful for your show of support and, though all board positions have been filled, I want you to remember there are still plenty of ways to get actively involved! Be sure to reach out to myself or any of your board members on our Chapter website or the new ASSP Community website to find out how.

ASSP Greater Chicago Chapter Members,

ASSP.  That may take awhile to get used to saying.  As you may know, the Safety 2018 Professional Development Conference in June was the kick-off of the Society name change.  We are now officially the Greater Chicago American Society for Safety Professionals.  As part of this rebranding, Society rolled out a marketing campaign titled We Are Safety Professionals, which you can see highlighted at the bottom of our newsletter.  If you have a chance, take a look at this, because the pros featured are all Chicago members just like you.
