Bay Area ChapterWise Committee Announcement

Posted: Jul 28, 2019

The ChapterWISE effort with the Greater San Jose Chapter (GSJC) and getting the San Francisco Chapter involved is off to a great start, with support from the GSJC Executive committee and SF Chapter President and others to support the mentor/mentee program to set up a Speed mentor/mentee event, putting together socials, outreach both to students and to community, and programming.

With excellent networking and the desire to provide remote access to outliers in our groups, ChapterWISE chairs agreed to form a section.

The Greater San Jose Chapter wants to provide a Bay Area section for WISE, with the structure that comes with a section to help provide a solid foundation of volunteer commitment to the goals of the WISE membership and ASSP membership in the Bay Area.

WISE involvement is still new to  many of the ASSP and WISE members in both these chapters and I believe to many of the WISE members, as a whole in this area.

The structure of leadership, provides for chairs to take on additional support roles to make WISE successful in our area.

Our kick off telecon, filled almost all chair positions that were set forth to provide a successful foundation to our effort. Add PowerPoint meeting here

Thank you all for your continued service to our Safety Community.
