Welcome

Chapter Governance Bylaws

This past March, delegates made the historic decision to transition the House of Delegates to an Advisory Group, amending the ASSP bylaws to effect the change. ASSP has updated all governing documents to reflect this change, including the model chapter bylaws. Per the chapter affiliation agreement, chapters are required to maintain bylaws that are aligned with the model chapter bylaws. Chapter members will need to vote to amend our chapter’s bylaws to bring them into alignment with these updates. Please watch your inbox for an email to review the redline copy of our chapter’s bylaws with the proposed amendments and an e-ballot to vote on these changes.

Chapter News

We’ve had an eventful couple of months at SC ASSP!

At our November meeting we had a great presentation by one of our members, Mike Ehrmantraut, on a couple of large industrial fire investigations and we gathered an impressive amount of bike safety gear to donate to Toys-for-Tots. Thank you to all who made donations!

We had a great lunch in December to celebrate the holidays together and we welcomed a couple of new members!

We’re looking forward to a strong year with SC ASSP in 2022 and we are excited to be kicking off the year with our first site visit in a long time! Plan to join us on January 20th in Sumter for a site tour of Jet-Vac (I’m told they will be bringing out the big equipment and doing a demonstration for us!). Then mark your calendar for February 18th for our PDC! We will be applying for CEUs once again this year and already have a few great sessions lined up. More to come soon!
