Today, the AHMP Board of Directors announces the departure of our Executive Director, Cedric Calhoun, who has decided to pursue other career opportunities. We wish to thank Cedric for his many years of service, making our organization more inclusive of the hazardous materials management profession and moving it from volunteer-run to professionally-managed.
The AHMP Executive Committee and Board of Directors have implemented plans for interim operation of the organization and are developing a transitioning plan to a new management structure. Cedric’s departure and the recent passing of Nina Gilmore, our longtime friend and administrative anchor, will present challenges in the short term. Fortunately, we have capable member volunteers and strong and effective committees, chapters, and outside support to help us through this period. However, we do ask our members and chapters to have patience during those times when communications, services, and responsiveness from the central office will be less than optimal.
We look at this as an opportunity to evaluate our operations, improve our organization and our member services. We welcome any and all constructive suggestions and ideas you may have and any support services you can provide during the transition. We will continue to update you on the transition as it unfolds.
