Open Letter - April Executive Update
Spring is upon us and while the weather certainly hasn’t been cooperating with recent snowfall and cooler temperatures, I am hopeful that we will soon experience warmer weather. The executive team has been meeting to review and update the Chapter By-Laws and Operations Manual. Plans are to have this piece of work finalized by summer 2017 and publish it on our chapters’ website. These are important documents that guide and direct how we function as a chapter to ensure alignment with National’s operating requirements.
As you may know, I am the Chair of the Planning Committee for the National Professional Development Conference (PDC) being held in Halifax, NS this coming September. Allow me to give my word that this will be one of the best conferences you will attend this year. We have a fantastic line-up of key note speakers, concurrent and workshop sessions, exceptional tradeshow vendors, networking opportunities and it's all being held in a setting that is second to none with Maritime hospitality. Early bird registration is now open, I hope to see you all there!
Finally, don’t forget to register for our upcoming Chapter events including the ever famous NAOSH Speakers Conference; CSP Prep Course and the annual Golf Tournament. All upcoming events are open for registration. We are in need of sponsors to support the golf tournament. If you are able to sponsor this event, please contact any board member.
Remember, if you have never attended one of our events or are worried about coming alone we would like to invite you to get in touch with us and we will ensure that we personally connect you and be our guest to help build your network. Please join us at our next event and you will certainly not be disappointed.
