Chapter Governance Bylaws

This past March, delegates made the historic decision to transition the House of Delegates to an Advisory Group, amending the ASSP bylaws to effect the change. ASSP has updated all governing documents to reflect this change, including the model chapter bylaws. Per the chapter affiliation agreement, chapters are required to maintain bylaws that are aligned with the model chapter bylaws. Chapter members will need to vote to amend our chapter’s bylaws to bring them into alignment with these updates. Please watch your inbox for an email to review the redline copy of our chapter’s bylaws with the proposed amendments and an e-ballot to vote on these changes.

Chapter Raises Funds for Student Section Scholarship

On August 21st the Granite State Chapter held a Fundraiser Car Show in Concord NH to raise money for scholarships for Keene State Safety Student Scholarships.

We were able to raise $914 for the scholarship fund and Region 8 of ASSP donated an additional $500 to the student section.

A huge thank you to Joe Orazio for putting the car show together and for hosting the event and to our E-board members Sam Despins, Al Parise and Jeff Slark for volunteering at the event.

Thank you to our sponsors KG Performance Solutions, GZA GeoEnvironmental, Inc.  and GeoInsight and to our donors to our raffle Concord Beef & Seafood, Pamela Bealo, CSP, and KG performance.
