President's Message

Dear Members,

Spring has finally arrived! And I am sure we are all very glad to see it come and the sleet and snow of this past winter finally behind us.  With spring comes one of the chapter’s most important events of the year… the annual election of officers. The election will take place during our monthly meeting on Tuesday, April 15th. We will have a tour of EcoFlo but we will also hold a brief meeting to hold the elections. In addition to the elected officials, there are also committee chair positions for 2014 -2015. If you’re interested in joining the Executive Committee and serving your chapter, please let us know. If you know of someone that you think would be a good committee member let us know. I would like to see a great turnout for this meeting so we can show support for our chapter and for the incoming officers.

In May, we will not have a Technical Meeting because of the 84th Annual NC Statewide Safety Conference on May 13-15, 2014 at the Koury Convention Center in Greensboro.  I encourage everyone to attend the 84th Annual Statewide Safety Conference. The conference program includes a broad range of safety and health topics, with presentations by outstanding speakers. There will also be over 85 vendors displaying the latest in safety and health equipment and services. And best of all, the exhibit hall and the education and training classes are FREE! The Western Carolina chapter will sponsor a luncheon on Wednesday, May 14th in Colony Room BC. The session, entitled, “Strategic Thinking for Excellence” will be presented by Trish Ennis, CSP, ARM, CPSI our Society’s President-Elect. There will be a charge for the luncheon. Cost to attend is $25 and tickets are required. Tickets can be purchased at the ASSE booth before the event, by contacting Rick Kilpatrick at the Western Carolina Chapter, or through members of the Triad ASSE.   I hope everyone is enjoying the great spring weather and taking advantage of these educational opportunities.
