I am an ASSE-MEC member for more than 10 years. My involvement as officer started
back in 2005 when I joined the board as treasurer, after that year, I served the chapter in
different terms holding positions like secretary, treasurer and assembly delegate.

I was part of the organizing committee for the last 4 conferences organized by the
chapter. I was the commence director for the 11th conference which was held in March
2014 in Bahrain attended by more than 1000 safety professionals.
With the academic qualification and the experience I gained over the years, I am sure that
