We encourage all of our members to participate, no matter what the level. Your input is valuable to the Chapter. Here are a couple of things to consider:
- Want to see how the Chapter works? Come to an Executive Committee meeting. They are typically held the 2nd Tuesday of every month from 10:30-11:30 am. It’s open to all members, so come check it out!
- No previous committee experience is required to serve on the Executive Committee. We all bring different experiences to the table. Add your voice and help us make the Chapter even better.
- Got questions? Talk to us! Any of the current and past Executive Committee members are happy to discuss their positions with you. They can even set up shadowing opportunities so that you can get a feel for the position.
- In addition, the Chapter has a number of non-elected positions that participate in Executive Committee meetings. These non-elected positions are an opportunity to get familiar with the workings of our Chapter and contribute to our success without having to commit to an elected position. If this is something you are interested in please contact Chapter President, Ashli Sturgill, at email@example.com for more details.
Getting engaged and involved with ASSP in a leadership capacity is a rewarding experience AND a meaningful way to give back to your profession while expanding your network!

The SF Chapter WISE Community Group is hosting an online technical session open to ALL!
TRUE is the first Zero Waste Certification Program dedicated to measuring, improving, and recognizing zero waste performance by encouraging adoption of sustainable materials management and reduction practices to contribute to
positive environmental, health, and financial outcomes. The transition to a truly circular economy will require us to challenge everything we’ve been taught about waste and begin viewing our material (or trash) as a resource or an
opportunity rather than as something simply to discard.
With over 250 facilities in over 21 countries, organizations are deploying TRUE as their zero-materials management system to standardize practices in their operations and streamline educational efforts to onboard staff.
If you represent an organization seeking to build or refine a zero-waste program, obtain certification for your facility,enhance ISO 14001 program, or may have plateaued somewhere along the way, this technical session will introduce you to the TRUE Certification program and share practical strategies from a Destination Zero Advisor, a business line within Ingenium Group, LLC, to position your organization on its path to a sustainable future
