We are the local chapter of the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) located in the Northeastern Illinois (NEIL) suburbs of Chicago. Our Chapter was founded in 1982, and we currently have 303 members. This year we will be covering a great variety of safety topics (see the Schedule). The meetings are a great opportunity for networking and to keep up to date on current safety topics! After the chapter meeting there will be an Executive Board meeting which is always open to members, come and bring your ideas for future meetings!

NEIL Chapter Awards Two NIU Students $500 Student Grants at Sage Products Chapter Meeting in May
On Friday May 17, 2013, the NEIL Chapter gathered in Cary, IL to take a tour of Sage Products, a major manufacturer and distributor of health and personal care products. The host of our tour was NEIL member Amy Timmerman, who is Sage’s EHS Specialist.
Before the tour, NIU student Martha Misch was presented with a $500 check for winning one of the two 2012 student grants (see Martha in the photo above with NEIL Chapter President, Don Phillips and NEIL Scholarships and Grants Chair, Charlie Vasconez).
Each year, the NEIL chapter gives NIU students the opportunity to apply for two $500 grants. The other 2012 grant winner was NIU student Melinda Waibel, who could not join us for the tour, so her check was sent to her in the mail. Both Martha and Melinda satisfied the eligibility criteria and submitted the required application documents set forth in our guidelines, so congratulations to both NIU students for winning these awards!
For more information on how to apply for the 2013 ASSE NEIL NIU student grants, as well as NEIL’s 2014 ASSE Foundation Scholarship, please go to the Scholarship/Grants page on the NEIL ASSE web site (http://neil.asse.org/scholarships.php)"
