This is your opportunity to share your knowledge and experience with fellow chapter members!
The Executive Committee, specifically the Planning Committee, is asking for any and all members that may have an interest in presenting at a virtual technical meeting for the Chapter, to email Fran Sehn, Planning Committee Chair, at .

The Executive Committee will work with you if you are interested though not sure about a topic or how what you want to present on can be accomplished or if you are interested yet have not done this in the past.

We are looking for NEW Presenters for the virtual meetings. We are moving toward doing the live virtual meetings instead of recorded webinars during this pandemic.

The chapter is using Cisco WebEx for our virtual Chapter meetings.

“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.

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