Chapter Governance Bylaws

This past March, delegates made the historic decision to transition the House of Delegates to an Advisory Group, amending the ASSP bylaws to effect the change. ASSP has updated all governing documents to reflect this change, including the model chapter bylaws. Per the chapter affiliation agreement, chapters are required to maintain bylaws that are aligned with the model chapter bylaws. Chapter members will need to vote to amend our chapter’s bylaws to bring them into alignment with these updates. Please watch your inbox for an email to review the redline copy of our chapter’s bylaws with the proposed amendments and an e-ballot to vote on these changes.

Below is the list of Candidates for the 2022-2022 officers:

Joint Fun with the Colonial Chapter and GTC

Dinner was delicious, the location on the water was beautiful and the comradery was grand at the November joint meeting with GTC and the Colonial chapter. Michelle Twilley from AIHA provided some valuable insights on the updated Fed OSHA Emergency Standard for COVID-19. Bill Burge shared some current COVID-19 updates and background on how it is impacting VOSH officials day to day activities.

Old and new chapter members gathered together for a few photos, including some student representation from ODU! The second photo below was taken in front of a 27 million dollar (appraised) Jackson Pollack painting!

Tides Social Is a Hit!

We had a great turn out and beautiful weather for our first in person social since 2019! Everyone was glad to visit together and meet others. The food was great and we were even graced by Bobby the clown, who made balloon animals for the kids that attended. I’m sure everyone would agree that the patio was one incredible view! A huge shout out to long time GTC member Dan Hurley for facilitating the logistics and putting this together for our chapter! What a treat it was! Looking forward to transitioning to more in person opportunities.
