A message from ATSSA President & CEO Stacy Tetschner regarding injustice

Pam 0 389 Article rating: 3.0

As our industry and our country navigate challenging times, we at ATSSA continue to look for ways in which to facilitate an environment that allows our members and their employees to have the opportunity to safely work and own businesses.  As such, we were outraged by the senseless death of George Floyd in Minneapolis on May 25. As a leader in this industry, as a man in this world and as a father, I grieve what happened there as well as every act of injustice in America today. Supporting a citizen’s right to peacefully protest and advocate change is inherent to what this country stands for and will be what ultimately leads to a safer, stronger America.

“Innovations in Online Training to Keep Your Employees Engaged" covered the many options ATSSA now offers for training and the changes implemented to meet members’ needs after social distancing guidelines and travel restrictions related to COVID-19 limited the opportunity for in-person classes.
