Meet the ASSP Foundation Board

Good governance is at the heart of any successful non-profit. It helps us achieve our objectives and drives improvement and ensures maintenance of legal and ethical standing. The ASSP Foundation Board of Trustees governs the ASSP Foundation, helping to steward and maximize the impact of your gifts.

In April of 2020, the ASSP Foundation Board of Trustees voted to shift their governance structure resulting in the ASSP Board of Directors serving as the governing body of the both the Society and our Foundation.

This helps to strengthen the strategic alignment between the ASSP Foundation and ASSP while making the ASSP Foundation’s programs more impactful. Since we are funded by contributions from the safety community, it is important that we optimize our resources as best we can so we can focus on programs that will build the pipeline of future safety professionals.
