Highlights- Planning Meeting of a New Chapter Year

Posted: Jul 08, 2019

Were you aware that ASSP Chapter years begins on the 1st of July and goes until June 30th of the following year? Today the 2019-2020 Greater Chicago Chapter Executive Board had our first planning meeting of a new Chapter Year. Having a late lunch at an old favorite, Cucina Biagio in Harwood Heights, IL, we welcomed a new Board Member, Dennis Terpin, who joins us as a Chapter Delegate. They hold the responsibility to deliberate and vote on Society business every June at the House of Delegates meeting held at Annual Safety Conference.

We also celebrated the achievements of the past board members to get our Chapter to Gold Status in the 2017-2018 Chapter Year. Pictured above, Chapter Vice President Carmen Julia Castellon shares the Gold Award we received this year at Safety 2019 with our other Chapter Delegate Karen Boyce Lindgren who served as Chapter Past President in 2017-2018. Thanks for your service team!
