Southern Indiana Section Meetings

Posted: Jan 12, 2018

The Southern Indiana Section is restarting activity.  The Section leadership team has developed several informative and interesting opportunities to meet.

The first Southern Section Technical Meeting is Tuesday, January 23.  The topic is Machine Reliability and Life Cycle and will be presented by a representative from Rockwell Automation.  This will be a deep dive into to the design, installation and utilization of industrial automation safeguarding technology.  With the ever increasing reliance of industry, and society as a whole, on automated and autonomous equipment, safeguarding is a hot topic for safety professionals.  This is a chance to hear from experts regarding making such equipment safe today and in the future!

Proposed Amendments to Chapter Bylaws

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

ASSE members 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.

To learn more about these proposed changes:

We will hold a member vote on these proposed changes at an upcoming meeting of the chapter.
