President's Message

Dear Members,

2012/2013 promises to be an exciting year for OSSOA. We look forward to building on the momentum of our annual workshop held in July at the Riverhouse in Bend. If you joined us at the conference you heard presentations on the emerging risks associated with electronic media and social networks, and the importance of safety committees and sound risk management practices. There were also opportunities to meet and network with colleagues around the state including a roundtable discussion on the challenges of complying with Integrated Pest Management regulations. We have received excellent feedback from those of you who attended the conference and have already begun planning for next year. We would love to hear from you if there are topics you would like to see covered.

The strength of our association is drawn from the collective knowledge and expertise of our membership and is supported by the relationships we build with our sponsor members. We all face many of the same challenges, and answers and solutions can often be found by networking through OSSOA. We become stronger as our membership grows, when we add new sponsors, and when our organization makes it easier to share resources with each other. We are committed to working this year to grow in all three areas through networking, our website, and our annual workshop.

I encourage you to explore the resources OSSOA has to offer. Visit our website and see the latest in the world of safety, take advantage of the networking opportunities, and make plans to join us next July 23 in Bend.

Finally, if you have any questions or suggestions for how we can serve you better, please feel free to contact me or any of the board members.

Best regards,

Kevin Jones, ARM
