Safety 2014: Find Ways to Give Back

SAFETY2014_rgb150No matter what their area of expertise, SH&E professionals have a common thread: They are driven by an altruistic spirit. Safety 2014 in Orlando, FL, offers a few ways to give back.

ASSE Foundation Activities
Help support the future of the safety profession by taking part in the ASSE Foundation 2014 Safety Matters Golf Tournament. The tournament will be held at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club Orlando on June 8. The $165 fee includes greens fee, cart rental, range balls and lunch. This fun day on the links is a great way to help support the Foundation’s programs in research, education and leadership development within the safety community.

Another way to support the Foundation’s programs at Safety 2014 is to take part in the ASSEF Silent Auction, either by contributing donations to be auctioned, or by bidding on items either on site or now online. Funds raised during the silent auction help support SH&E scholarships.

Volunteer for the Greet Team
If you’re planning to attend Safety 2014 or you’re from the Orlando area, be part of the excitement by volunteering some of your time to help make the conference a success. Volunteer to be a hotel or convention center greeter, or donate your smiling face to help direct attendees to lunches and general sessions. Download the greeter volunteer form to get started.

Be a Guest Blogger
As a conference attendee, share your experience by being a guest blogger on ASSE’s blog, EHS Works. Give your perspective—in your own voice—about sessions you’re already attending, and in the process share your experience with fellow members who can’t make it to the conference. For more information, contact Sue Trebswether.

Pass Along Your Knowledge
There’s no better way to give back to your profession than sharing your knowledge, expertise and lessons learned with fellow safety professionals. Learn about writing for Professional Safety by stopping by the Service Center.

Another way to share your knowledge is by becoming a presenter at Safety 2015, which will be held in Dallas, TX, June 7-10, 2015. By presenting at Safety 2015, you can expand the profession’s knowledge and help prepare future practitioners for the challenges ahead. Learn more at this year’s conference by attending a session on how to submit a proposal to become a presenter next year.
