Update from Joe McKillips, NETS’ Executive Director – March 2017
Have you ever been asked by your senior leadership to explain the value proposition for your road safety program? It’s a challenge that most of us in the road safety field have faced at one time or another. This is an area where NETS can be a great resource to you. Not only can you easily find supporting data around topics such as the cost of collisions and recommended road safety practices, you’ll also find a number of guides and tools to help you enhance your program, reduce risk and save lives – all central to the NETS mission.
I’d like to invite you to take a closer look at the NETS website where you can access these materials. We’re in the process of making improvements to the site that will provide a more user-friendly and interactive experience. All NETS resources, including our open-access (available to all) and member-only benefits, are easier to access with our new website design.
If you’re not a member, I encourage you to set up a free guest account to download our many valuable open-access resources anytime by simply logging in. And I invite you to take a few minutes to explore the benefits of becoming a NETS member.
Some new things to check out for current NETS members:
- NETS Road Safety Resources, which includes both member-only and open access materials. NEW THIS MONTH: We’ve added a Post-Incident Coaching Toolkit, which includes guidance and templates to conduct post-incident coaching for crash follow up and prevention measures.
- More information on the NETS STRENGTH IN NUMBERS® Benchmark Report and Data, a great resource to help you compare your program to others.
- Information about our 2017 STRENGTH IN NUMBERS® Annual Meeting, coming up October 11-12th.
Within the next few weeks, also watch for an updated Road Safety Leaders FORUM where NETS members will be able to post discussion topics, ask questions and provide their input, online and in real-time.
It’s an exciting time to be involved with NETS! Thanks for your continued support and please feel free to reach out to myself, or Susan Gillies if you have any questions about how NETS can help you to enhance the reach and effectiveness of your road safety program.
