Regionally the chapter sponsors a Safety Committee in which members from the area share best practices and communicate challenges.  Steve Streimer said, “Safety has always been one of those areas where the Oregon and SW Washington Chapter members have worked really well together. We believe the chapters safety taskforce is a great place to bounce ideas off each other and to align approaches to similar issues.”
