Chapter Officers

The Orange County ASSE is governed by an Executive Committee comprised of chapter volunteers and operates under Chapter By-Laws approved by the ASSE. Chapter officers and board members are elected or appointed to one-year terms. See our chapter’s Long-Range Plan. All members are encouraged to volunteer for board or committee positions.
