ASP/CSP Study Group every 1st and 3rd Tuesday

Are you interested in joining an ASP/CSP study group?

Certification such as an Associate Safety Professional (ASP) or Certified Safety Professional (CSP) gives you a competitive advantage in hiring, and certificants report higher salaries than their non-certified counterparts.

The ASSE San Francisco Chapter is holding a bi-monthly ASP/CSP study group. The focus will be on the new CSP9 Examination Blueprint and ASP9 Blueprint.

ASP/CSP study group is held on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month at the Clorox Building (1221 Broadway) in Oakland, CA.

2016 ASSE Leadership Conference

Four executive committee members attended amazing Leadership Conference in Oak Brook, IL on October 13-15, 2016.

The annual ASSE Society Leadership Conference, held at Hamburger University in Oak Brook, Illinois, was a great opportunity for some of our own executive committee members to meet with 220 other executive committee members from chapters around the world. They participated in breakout, lightning, and in-depth sessions that will help develop skills and leadership potential for both ASSE and their careers. Look for some fun new ideas in the coming months. A highlight was Sydney Finkelstein, the keynote speaker and Steven Roth Professor of Management and Faculty Director at the Tuck Center for Leadership at Dartmouth College, who inspired all with his presentation on his new book – Superbosses – about hiring individuals who are capable not merely of driving our businesses forward but of rewriting the very definition of success.
