Chapter elections for the 2020-2021 Secretary position will be by e-vote, keep an eye out for the important ballot email from ASSP that will be sent out soon. Listed below is the only nominee for the Wisconsin Chapter Secretary to take office July 1, 2020.
The nominee for Secretary is:
Matt Schmidt is the current safety leader for Quad and has been with the company since 2016. He currently oversees 4 different plants based across Wisconsin and Illinois. As a safety leader Matt works side by side with the plant leadership teams to implement, create, and maintain Quad’s safety policies and culture for the 1000+ employees at his facilities. His work with Quad has taken him all over Michigan, Wisconsin, and Illinois assisting on internal safety audits and investigations in order to help better the health and safety of everyone working at Quad. Matt first joined ASSP as a student member in 2013 while attending the University of Wisconsin Whitewater. He holds a B. S. in Occupational and Environmental Safety and Health from the UW Whitewater.
As a newer professional in the safety field I have always appreciated the learning and networking opportunities ASSP has provide me both in and out of school. If elected secretary, I would use the platform to try and attract other young professionals like myself to join the organization and discover the great value it can bring to a career in the safety field. I would also take the opportunity as secretary to continue to expand my own knowledge and network within the organization. Safety can be a profession with very unique challenges. ASSP offers a great community of people dealing with those same issues that is there to help and support each other. I want to get the word out about all the great things this chapter is doing for its members.
