Welcome

Chapter Governance Bylaws

This past March, delegates made the historic decision to transition the House of Delegates to an Advisory Group, amending the ASSP bylaws to effect the change. ASSP has updated all governing documents to reflect this change, including the model chapter bylaws. Per the chapter affiliation agreement, chapters are required to maintain bylaws that are aligned with the model chapter bylaws. Chapter members will need to vote to amend our chapter’s bylaws to bring them into alignment with these updates. Please watch your inbox for an email to review the redline copy of our chapter’s bylaws with the proposed amendments and an e-ballot to vote on these changes.

Liberty University Welcomed as New Student Section

ASSP Region 6 welcomes – Liberty University Student Section!

Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA, part of the Star Valley Chapter, is home to our latest student section. The school’s residential industrial and systems engineering program offers a B.S in Industrial and Systems Engineering.

Building on experience and support provided by faculty advisor Diana Jo Schwerha, Ph.D., the section’s officers took the lead in building the section and recruiting the members needed to form the section.

“We have a focus on servant leadership,” Schwerha says. “I would like to weave those leadership skills into our academic training so that our students enter the workforce prepared for both the technical and leadership challenges ahead of them.”

Congratulations, Liberty University! We look forward to your activities and contributions!
