Aug 29, 2020

The following message was received from ASSP:
“Congratulations on a great chapter year. The Western Pennsylvania Chapter has achieved Silver level recognition for the 2019-2020 year. This recognition is based from the information your chapter submitted in the Chapter Operations Management Tool (COMT) of 6/30/2020. 

This year provided a new challenge and ASSP chapters adapted to the realities this situation created to protect the health and well-being of their members and local communities.  All your efforts benefited your chapter members and the safety profession as a whole.  The chapters achievement of this level of success is greatly appreciated by ASSP.  

Again, congratulations on your accomplishment, and thank you for your work in providing opportunities for ASSP members to become better safety professionals.”

Congratulations and job well done to the Executive Committee of the 2019-2020 Chapter Year led by Cameron Boots and Bill Boots!
