Northwest Chapter Receives Society Platinum Award

Jul 10, 2018

Once again, the Northwest Chapter has achieved the Platinum level of Chapter Recognition for the 2016-2017 chapter year!  The award was presented at the Chapter Recognition Luncheon that took place at Safety 2018 in San Antonio, TX.This status is based from the information our Chapter submitted in the Chapter Operations Management Tool (COMT) of 6/30/2017.

The work that goes into achieving this level of success is impressive and greatly appreciated by ASSE.

The Northwest Chapter will be listed on the Chapter Recognition page of the ASSE website and will include the chapter President for 2016-2017.

Thank you for everyone’s work in providing accessible, face-to-face opportunities for ASSE members to become better safety professionals.
