Greetings from the 2012 – 2013 Board of the Orange County Chapter of ASSE!
Our first joint meeting with the Long Beach Chapter of the American Society of Safety Engineers was very well attended and was a very informative program.
Our dynamic speaker was Joanette Lima, PT, MS, CPE. Joanette is a Principal Safety Professional at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, CA and is the program manager for their ergonomics program. Prior to joining the Safety Services team at Disneyland in June of 2007 she was a principal in an ergonomics consulting business in Southern CA for 18 years. She is a physical therapist and certified professional ergonomist. She has been working in the field of ergonomics for over 23 years.
During the meeting, we officially elected our new slate of officers for the 2013 – 2014 year. The new elected board is:
In addition, Bob Howarth and Karl Lehman will be Program Co-chairs. Dolores Salman will move from the Venue Coordinator position to Membership Chair.
Our new Board would love your participation with us in any number of volunteer leadership areas. The Board will soon be participating in our annual planning meeting in which we chart the course for the upcoming year. As we have already announced, OCASSE is the most recent chapter to be selected by ASSE as the Large Chapter of the Year. This happened primarily because we have a tradition of having many volunteer leaders.
Please consider what your interest might be and contact one of your Board Members. This will help in our planning process and in maintaining our tradition as a strong chapter. Areas to consider volunteering are:
Our incoming board members will be busy and they will have many responsibilities next year. Extra hands are always welcome!
Our next meeting is the annual joint meeting with OCRIMS and OCASSE. Join us to hear this dynamic speaker, Don Wilson. Don is part of the ownership group and Vice President of the SafeStart safety training & consulting division of Electrolab Training Systems. Don was our keynote speaker in the 2012 Professional Development Conference in which he gave a very thought provoking presentation. The meeting will be 11:30, Tuesday (not Wednesday), May 14 at the Orange Hill Restaurant 6410 E. Chapman Avenue Orange, CA 92869.
Hope to see you there.
Bill Jones, President OCASSE 2012 - 2013
