President Alan A. Brazis
It is my distinct honor and privilege to serve as the 2013/2014 ASSE South Florida Chapter President. I am honored and very fortunate to follow a long succession of highly motivated and dedicated safety professionals. I will strive to maintain the high standards of the presidency and to continue to make the South Florida Chapter one of the most highly respected safety organizations in South Florida. I want to thank the members for voting and putting their trust in me with this leadership role. Our Executive Committee and Committee Chairs are dedicated in taking our chapter to the next level but we can only do this with your support!
I would like to continue to grow or chapter's membership and guest participation at our monthly meetings. Our Program Chair has many informative speakers lined up this year to provide meaningful professional development presentations. Chapter members are invited and encouraged to provide direction to the Executive Committee and Committee Chairs regarding topics you consider to be relevant and essential to our daily challenges of protecting both people and property.
Your Executive Committee and Committee Chairs are challenging all members to bring a least one guest to a meeting during the upcoming year. Getting the word out about our organization goes a long way to help promote membership and attendance at our monthly meetings. This will also help us recruit professional speakers who may be interested in presenting at future meetings. Remember the meetings not only provide important information through training, but also through networking with your peers. There is a wealth of information out there and most of it comes from making contacts and networking.
Please "step up to the plate" and attend our meetings and consider volunteering for either an Executive Committee or Committee Chair position. Think about you or your company sponsoring an upcoming meeting, to be a guest speaker, provides gift items which can be used during our monthly raffles, etc.
Yours in Safety,
Alan A. Brazis, CPEA
