I hope that everyone is gearing up for summer and the sun and fun that comes with it. This is the last President's Message that I will be writing to you. First, I want to thank everyone for letting me represent the Triad Chapter this year. I have thoroughly enjoyed it. This was a great opportunity for me to grow not only as a professional but also as a person. I also want to thank the Executive Board for helping me through the year; I could not have done it without them.
As the end of my tenure approaches, I would like to encourage the members to be more involved in the Chapter. There are plenty of op- portunities to volunteer that will not only benefit you but other mem- bers. It could be something as simple as attending a Technical meeting and making a new connection. We also have the Student Chapter that would greatly benefit from any mentoring that we could give them. They could learn some of the real life experiences in the workplace that they may have to deal with one day. We also welcome any other ideas on how to make the Chapter better for you, the members.
On June 18th we will have a technical meeting on GHS, The Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals. Dr. Ed Geddie with the NC DOL will be our presenter. The meeting will be at the Hibachi Grill & Supreme Buffet in Kernersville and the cost is $15 per person. So come hungry and ready to learn!
There are a few other upcoming events everyone should mark down on the calendar. First is the Region VI Profession Development Conference at the Kingston Plantation in Myrtle Beach, SC on September 18-20, 2013. The pre-conference seminars begin on September 15th. For more information please go to http://region6.asse.org/pdc/. this year.
Second is the annual LEPC/ASSE Business and Industry Safety and Environmental Conference at the Greensboro Coliseum on October 2nd. This is a great local, free training opportunity. There will also be an 8 hour HazWOPER refresher course on October 1st for $99.
It was a pleasure serving as your President this year. In July I will be passing the torch to Kulema McKoy, I know that she will do a wonderful job and make this great organization even better.
Hope everyone has a safe day!
Holly Johnson, President
