Safety Committees' Summer Meeting

The Ritz-Carlton, Chicago (A Four Seasons Hotel) | Chicago, IL
August 12, 2014

Coastal and Interregion Safety Committees will gather Tuesday, August 12th for an afternoon full of distinguished guest speakers and Lessons Learned presentations. A networking reception will be held that evening followed by an optional social dinner. The meeting will conclude by 12:00 p.m. on Wednesday, August 13th after a morning session of valuable and interesting member and guest presentations. This meeting is a great opportunity to learn more about safety issues in the industry. If you have not attended before or sent anyone from your company, we hope you will consider attending this ever-growing group of individuals – membership on the committee is not required to attend, although membership in AWO is. Past guest speakers have included NTSB Member Mark Rosekind and Vanderbilt Sleep Center’s Dr. Raghu Upender.

The Safety Committees' Summer Meeting will be held in conjunction with the Combined Regions' Summer Meeting. For more information on that meeting, please click here.
