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.

CALL FOR PRESENTERS

The South Carolina Chapter of ASSP is looking for presenters for our 2021-2022 Chapter year.  We have opportunities for presenting at chapter meetings, as well as our annual Professional Development Conference available.  If you have a topic you are passionate about, or a program you have had success with at your organization and would like to share it with your peers, please consider becoming a presenter! 

Chapter meeting presentations should be approximately 45 minutes long, and presentations for our PDC typically are 1-2 hours in length.  If you are looking for a way to share your knowledge with your peers, or even just practice your presentation skills, this is a perfect opportunity!

As a bonus, did you know you can earn CEU credits towards your ASP or CSP for being a presenter at the SC ASSP Professional Development Conference?

If you have a topic you would like to present, please email a summary of your presentation to twallace42995@gmail.com for review with the board.  If you are not interested in presenting but know someone who would be (they do not need to be an ASSP Member), please have them reach out to me or forward me their information so I can contact them.

We are looking forward to a great 2021-2022 Chapter Year!

Yours in safety,

Tracey Wallace, CSP, ARM
Vice-President – SC ASSP Chapter
