Update from Joe McKillips, NETS’ Executive Director – May 2017

It has been an exciting month at NETS! 

A new Drive Safely Work Week™ (DSWW) road safety awareness campaign, focused on Speed, was introduced in early May.

This is the first of a series of focused DSWW campaigns that will be offered more frequently throughout the year.  

Materials are not dated and are available to all, so if you have not yet taken the time to do so, I invite you to download the toolkit and schedule your Drive Safely Work Week™ Speed campaign during a time frame that works best for you.

We’ve also improved a key NETS member benefit: the ability to engage with your fellow road safety professionals.  A new & improved NETS Road Safety Leaders Forum is now available, where NETS members can post discussion topics, ask questions and contribute input – online and in real-time. I encourage all members to spend time within the forum to exchange and share their road safety expertise and wisdom with fellow colleagues.  

And finally, as I mentioned last month, registration for the 2017 STRENGTH IN NUMBERS® Annual Conference is now open for all NETS members, and I encourage you to register soon as space will be limited! Watch for the latest update on our exciting line-up of keynote speakers and break-out sessions, coming shortly. 

Thanks again to everyone for your time and dedication to making a difference in road safety. If you’re not yet a NETS member, there has never been a better time to join our mission to reduce risk and save lives!
