Looking for upcoming events in our area? We are compiling a list of all applicable events you may be interested in within our Region. This will include American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP) technical events from Chapters, conferences, workshops and more.
Head over to our Instagram page @asspregionvi and in our bio section you will see our story highlights. These stories are also posted to our Facebook page but disappear after a day so they aren’t archived like they are on our Instagram: https://instagram.com/asspregionvi
The different events are broken up by month so you can easily see what is going on each month. Have something you think the Region should know about? Send it to us! Tag us here or on Instagram or send us a direct message
We are pleased to announce the establishment of a new Student Section at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. The UNCC Student Section is under the school’s Fire and Safety Engineering Technology Program, in the department of Engineering Technology and Construction Management.
Many thanks to Dr. Michael Benjamin, who is the faculty advisor; the student section officers, the Executive Committee of ASSP Tarheel Chapter and others that supported this long-time dream that has now become reality.
“Since students are from the Fire Safety Engineering Technology Program, we have aimed to gear this club (the section) to the safety applications of the field of fire protection, but still cover the general safety practices” – Seth Averette, Student Section President.
It was about this same time last year that the Region welcomed Liberty University Student Section in Lynchburg, Virginia. We are excited that our students are getting engaged with professional activities from college, which is a boost for their future career paths.
Please join us to congratulate UNCC Student Section. We look forward to working with you!
