I’m relieved that, hopefully, a difficult chapter in our conference history, one of pandemic, lockdowns, and outbreaks that shut down many conferences in Oregon for the second year in a row, is coming to a close.
I’m thrilled that we are planning on a 100% in-person conference next year, and I’m thrilled that I have the privilege to pass the reigns to the very capable David Hanson next year. Of course, I’ll still be on the team.
Thanks again to everyone who helped make this year’s event a success! We had some very interesting new content. We discovered a local leadership expert in Jeff Crapo, a local sleep scientist who would like to continue working with our committee, and even a couple other new planning committee members. If you’d like to join us, starting in January, to build our 33rd annual safety conference, please let David Hanson or me know. We’d be glad to have you join us. We meet for lunch once per month to put together all of the details, and we even have some fun along the way!
Lastly, for those of you who attended, please watch your email for a link to a page on our www.sosafety.org website. You will receive a login password to view all the sessions again or just the ones you missed. They should be available until the end of the year.
It was my pleasure to serve as the 2020, 2021 and 2022 conference planning chair!
