The ASSP Foundation is currently accepting applications for scholarships from October 15th, 2022 through February 15th, 2023. The AZASSP Chapter has two scholarships that give initial preference to Arizona students – the Edgar Atzin Arizona Chapter Scholarship and the William C. Ray, CIH, CSP Arizona Scholarship. You can view information on how to apply for these scholarships here.
We would like to invite anyone interested in becoming involved with our Arizona Chapter of the American Society of Safety Professionals to submit their bid for the Vice President, Secretary, or Treasurer position, on our Chapter Board.
Involvement in the Chapter is a fantastic way to network with other safety professionals and be a servant leader to our profession. You also earn additional recertification points for serving on the board. Please contact our Nominations Chair, Mark Welch, at email@example.com.
We are seeking nominations for the AZASSP Chapter Safety Professional of the Year and the Executive of the Year. If you know someone that should be recognized for their efforts in Safety and Health for the past year, please submit the linked nomination. This is an opportunity to recognize a colleague you know who has gone above and beyond for the advancement of the safety profession or providing employees a safe and healthy workplace. It’s a way to thank your company leadership for their commitment to protecting workers. Please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about the process. We are more than happy to assist with the required paperwork.
