Are you Prepared for the Tier II Reporting Deadline on March 1st?
Presented by Rick Foote of Triumvirate
Section 312 of the Emergency Planning Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) of 1986 states that Emergency and Hazardous Chemical Inventory Reports, also known as Tier II reports, must be submitted annually by March 1st to your State Emergency Response Commission (SERC), Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC), and local fire department(s). Failure to comply with Tier II reporting requirements can cost your organization. Each violation of EPCRA Section 312 may result in civil penalties of up to $25,000. Each day a violation continues constitutes a separate violation. This webinar will help you to know if you are ready to complete and submit your Tier II report by the March 1st deadline.

He has strong operations professional skills including ISO 14001 and ISO 18001, Environmental Issues, Workplace Safety, Environmental Auditing, and Occupational Health.

2017 Operating Plan for our Members

         2017 NEACHMM Operating Plan



In accordance with the NEACHMM by-laws, the NEACHMM Board of Directors has developed a plan and structured its operations to guide decision making, activity planning, and budget development as discussed below. This plan is a flexible set of guidelines for the NEACHMM officers to carry out their duties for the coming year.

NEACHMM’s primary audience is our membership, which includes CHMMs, CHMPs and affiliated members.


NEACHMM Objectives

Deliver professional development programs targeted to our diverse membership by setting a tentative schedule in the beginning of the year (See tentative schedule below for current year); by delivering high quality meetings with diverse topics; by supporting joint meetings with affiliated organizations; by providing opportunities for networking, learning, interaction and communication among members and guests involved in hazardous materials management.

Provide (2) CHMM Certification Essentials of Hazardous Materials Management Courses by delivering a 3-4 day course using local instructors and promoting the exam. One North Shore course in the Spring and one South Shore course in the Fall.



To achieve these goals, NEACHMM will organize and fund the following types of activities:

  • Invite AHMP leaders and visitors from other chapters to our meetings

  • Hold NEACHMM elections in November of each year

  • Manage an annual budget (attached) with expenses for membership meetings, workshops, travel to conferences, promotions, etc.

  • Publish a quarterly blog

  • Maintain outreach to other professional organizations and conduct joint meetings when possible

  • Continue to provide value to members through the website

  • Seek other opportunities to provide meaningful professional development benefits to members

  • Periodically review and update, as necessary, the bylaws

  • Inform and remind membership of the opportunities that the Alliance has for awards and participation in committees
