The ASSP Region VIII New England Area Chapters invite presenters for the 24th Annual Professional Development Conference to submit proposals for review by the PDC Planning Committee. Our speakers provide attendees the opportunity to build professional skills and knowledge, tackle and provide solutions to new and existing challenges in the Safety, Health and Environment field, and promote the development of new entrants in our field. The PDC includes a variety of practical and technical programs which include management techniques and soft skills.
Presentations should be timed to run inside of 60 minutes including the question and answer portion (e.g. 50 minutes plus 10 minute Q&A).
Each presentation room will have an LCD projector and screen, lapel and/or podium microphones. Speakers are required to bring a computer and, if necessary, audio speakers.
The deadline for submissions is June 30.
For the first time in over 20 years, our student section at Millersville University has been named the Outstanding Student Section of the Year. The student section is part of the Region VIII Central Pennsylvania Chapter.
The group was strong in all three critical requirements — professional development, research, and campus and community Involvement.
The committee that reviewed applications was impressed with the section’s submission. “The quality and quantity of research conducted by the members was outstanding along with the organization of the application and the number of technical meetings this student section participated in.” Faculty advisor Betty-Jo Bowers and the student section will receive $5,000 to fund scholarships and research.Read More
