Spring 2016 President’s Message

Posted: May 17, 2016

In March we successfully held our Professional Development Conference (PDC) in Brea.  We had over 100 attendees that were able to learn on topics of Ergonomics, Safety Leadership and OSHA procedures.  A big congratulations to the PDC Programming and Planning Committee!  The 2017 PDC planning committee is already working hard on next year’s event which we anticipate will be even better.

At our April Technical meeting we hold our executive board member elections.  Although this year’s program is coming to an end, we are already beginning to look to next year with our board planning meeting being held on May 14th.  As always, we invite you to join the team and volunteer to help the chapter board.  If you are interested in attending, please email me.
