Southern Oregon Chapter President
Our next chapter meeting will be a special treat. Because of our virtual meeting platform, we are able to invite speakers from farther outside of our chapter area. Jose Perez will join our chapter meeting and provide a presentation for us. Jose Perez was a speaker at the ASSP National Leadership Conference a couple years ago on resiliency and being tenacious. He is providing a special program just for our chapter on leadership and being adaptable. I am really looking forward to this. I hope you are as well.
In April, our very own Mark Hurliman will provide information for those of you thinking of pursuing a SHARP or VPP certification for your site. Even if you are not, this presentation will have valuable information about building a world-class safety program and what it takes.
Watch for updates and information about a new professional development course we are working on offering in May. This will be a 3-hour morning PDC on Total Worker Health topics with Dede Montgomery from OSHU and Liz Hill from SAIF. This PDC will offer .3 CEU credits. Currently, we are looking closely at holding this event during the second week of May. Keep watching our website for updates on this event as we get closer.
