    Spring is just around the corner, and you know what that means – it’s time to renew your yearly membership! Whether you are a long-term member or renewing for the first time, I thank you in advance. Your commitment and support helps to promote human factors and ergonomics in the Puget Sound region and beyond.

    Membership also allows you to participate in many exciting professional development and networking opportunities. On March 8, PSHFES will host a lunch talk entitled, “Ergonomics and Employee Engagement”, organized by Program Co-Chair Nichole Irby. The event, to be held from 11:30 AM to 1 PM at Ergo Squad 2017 Elliot Ave, Suite 306 Seattle, will be the first of many 2018 events organized by Nicole and our newest Program Co-Chair, Lynnda Dee English of Solutions Northwest, Inc. Space is limited, so I urge you to register for the talk soon!

    Our annual PSHFES Symposium will be held on September 13 at the Four Points by Sheraton Seattle Airport South, Des Moines, WA. Serving as chair for this year’s event is Ninica (Niki) Howard, the renowned ergonomics researcher and speaker from SHARP, Department of Labor & Industries, Olympia, WA. Niki is working meticulously on the symposium theme and agenda. If you want to get involved in planning the symposium activities, please contact either Niki or the current Executive Council as soon as possible.

    Finally, I encourage you to talk to your coworkers and managers about becoming PSHFES members. And if you have any thoughts on how we can do better as a professional society, or if you want more information on PSHFES and its member benefits and activities, please email me. I would love to hear from you.
