2017 Operating Plan for our Members

         2017 NEACHMM Operating Plan

 

Introduction

In accordance with the NEACHMM by-laws, the NEACHMM Board of Directors has developed a plan and structured its operations to guide decision making, activity planning, and budget development as discussed below. This plan is a flexible set of guidelines for the NEACHMM officers to carry out their duties for the coming year.

NEACHMM’s primary audience is our membership, which includes CHMMs, CHMPs and affiliated members.

 

NEACHMM Objectives

Deliver professional development programs targeted to our diverse membership by setting a tentative schedule in the beginning of the year (See tentative schedule below for current year); by delivering high quality meetings with diverse topics; by supporting joint meetings with affiliated organizations; by providing opportunities for networking, learning, interaction and communication among members and guests involved in hazardous materials management.

Provide (2) CHMM Certification Essentials of Hazardous Materials Management Courses by delivering a 3-4 day course using local instructors and promoting the exam. One North Shore course in the Spring and one South Shore course in the Fall.

 

Activities

To achieve these goals, NEACHMM will organize and fund the following types of activities:

  • Endorse or participate in national and local conferences

  • Hold at least 6 general membership meetings / facility tours, including a social outing

  • Invite AHMP leaders and visitors from other chapters to our meetings

  • Provide continuing education to our membership by presenting interesting technical topics/facility tours/courses

  • Hold NEACHMM elections in November of each year

  • Manage an annual budget (attached) with expenses for membership meetings, workshops, travel to conferences, promotions, etc.

  • Publish a quarterly blog

  • Maintain outreach to other professional organizations and conduct joint meetings when possible

  • Continue to provide value to members through the website

  • Seek other opportunities to provide meaningful professional development benefits to members

  • Periodically review and update, as necessary, the bylaws

  • Inform and remind membership of the opportunities that the Alliance has for awards and participation in committees

  • Hold at least one official annual business meeting in accordance with Massachusetts regulations

  • Submit appropriate form and fee to Massachusetts to maintain our business status
