Proposed Amendments to Chapter Bylaws

Posted: Jan 12, 2018

This past August, ASSE members made the historic decision to change the organization’s name to the American Society of Safety Professionals.

ASSE members voted to amend Society bylaws to reflect the new name. As a separately incorporated entity, our chapter needs to hold a separate chapter member vote to change the name in our bylaws, as well.

In addition to the name change, our chapter is also proposing changes needed to recognize the adoption of Areas in our region and to bring our bylaws into alignment with the Model Chapter Bylaws, in accordance with the decision by the Council on Region Affairs to apply the same Regional Operating Guidelines to all chapters, whether they are operating within or outside the United States.

To learn more about these proposed changes:

We will hold a member vote on these proposed changes at an upcoming meeting of the chapter.
