The Advisory Board is a forum of forward-thinking leaders who provide strategic input and advice to the direction of the Safety in Action conference and Executive Forum. Leaders are selected for both their organizational expertise as well as their commitment to safety. Advisory Board members provide invaluable guidance that complements the work of the Steering Committee in creating a dynamic conference experience that advances the practice of safety.

We wish to thank our 2017 Advisory Board members for their contributions and look forward to announcing our 2018 Board soon.
