We gave awards to members to recognize:

The members named below have helped GLASC grow over the recent years.  We have held meetings at their locations, they have reached out to organizations to help increase our membership and have also helped provide presenters and lunch sponsors for many meetings.  Not only that, these three gentlemen are also our GLASC Trustees.  We want to thank them for their dedication to our council, therefore, on behalf of GLASC, presenting an engraved paperweight with a message, we would like to thank…

  • Brian Brough- SafetyWear- Martin
  • Ryan Griffin- Marketforce
  • Ryan Hasser- Huston Electric

These members have played integral parts of GLASC for many years but have especially helped with Platinum Sponsorships for our GLASC Safety Conference and Expos.  That in turn plays a major part in the success of our Conference and Expo.  We cannot thank either one of these individuals and companies enough. Therefore, on behalf of GLASC, presenting a Crystal engraved Award with a message, we would like to thank…

  • Dean Spahr- Ritz Safety
  • Derik Stohler- Ansell

The last two members we recognized, make it very difficult to put into words every single action they have taken over the years to continue to help make GLASC successful.  Their personal hours spent in relation to GLASC is unattainable.  Their selflessness is inspiring.  The thought and effort they put into our Safety Conference & Expos as well as seeking opportunities to continue to grow our council is outstanding.  We cannot thank either one of these individuals and companies enough. Therefore, on behalf of GLASC, presenting a personally engraved ink pen, we would like to thank…

  • Bobby Williams- ATI Worksite Solutions
  • Shelley Wuerthner- ConAgra Foods

Save the Date: Our January Meeting will be held on the 3rd Wednesday, 1/15/20 at the Subaru Training & Reception Center- Lafayette, IN

Thanks again to everyone for an amazing 2019, here’s to a safe and prosperous 2020!
