Vision Statement

My record of extensive involvement in several NAEM activities over the last three years, combined with my 20-plus years of leadership, corporate management and technical consulting experience, have positioned me well to represent the interests of NAEM Affiliates Council members as their next Vice President. I believe this experience across a wide range of compliance, supply chain and scientific issues, while building partnerships with companies and their EHS professionals in varied industries, will strengthen the Affiliates Council’s vital partnership role with NAEM’s Corporate Members. The roles of EHS professionals in member companies and among the Affiliates Council are evolving into new disciplines and providing value in emerging areas such as sustainability, safer product chemistry, R&D and process design. At the same time, core compliance responsibilities are growing, while companies are faced with continued budget pressures. As providers of innovative products, consulting services, and a wide range of information technology services, Affiliates Council members need to address the current and future challenges corporate members face so that we can deliver value, while also recognizing the benefits of the relationships we build at NAEM. I envision continuing to advocate for an active voice in setting agendas for NAEM research and events that not only address current issues, but tackle future issues, as well. Increasing direct outreach and collaborating on joint research with corporate members and NAEM staff can build on the progress we have been making and also better position Affiliate Council members as forward-thinking partners. With a record of active involvement at all NAEM events the past several years and strong relationships with NAEM staff, Corporate Members and other Affiliates, I am eager to expand my commitment to NAEM to create expanded value for all Affiliates Council members.

Statement of Interest

I introduced AlterEcho to NAEM and have been our lead representative at every event for the past three years. My involvement in webinar presentations and on the 2013 Forum Planning Committee has provided insight to valuable opportunities for AC members, as well as areas where our role can improve. I hope you will support my goals of pursuing new areas of value for the NAEM AC members and ensuring that NAEM’s focus continues to expand into emerging opportunity areas for EHS professionals.
