Proposed Amendments to Chapter Bylaws
Posted - Jan 16, 2018

This past August, ASSE members made the historic decision to change the name of our organization to the American Society of Safety Professionals.

ASSE members then voted to amend Society bylaws to reflect the new name. As a separately incorporated entity, our chapter needs to hold a separate chapter member vote to change the name in our bylaws, as well.

There are no other changes to these bylaws besides the name change to ASSP, and the change to the North Area of Region III, instead of just Region III.

To see the proposed changes and our motion, see links below:

We will hold a member vote on these proposed changes at our February Chapter meeting.

Thank you,

South Plains Chapter Executive Committee
