Elevating Member Voice

Brad Giles

Bradley D. Giles, P.E., CSP, STS, FASSP, GIOSH, 2021-2022
ASSP President Sep 01, 2021

As noted in my message last month, we have been talking with many members over the past few months about a proposal to change ASSP’s governance. I strongly encourage you to visit our governance web page at www.assp.org/governance to review our FAQs and other materials so that you can better understand the proposal, submit your questions and connect with your volunteer leaders before the House of Delegates votes on Tuesday, Sept. 28.

  2. How can we ensure continued representation for our various member communities, including chapters, practice specialties, common interest groups, regions and councils while also creating opportunities for others to have a voice?
