This new brand identity package was developed to create a new organizational name that will appeal to all professionals in the environmental, health, safety and security industry.
Bethesda, MD – The Academy of Certified Hazardous Materials Managers (ACHMM) has changed its name to the Alliance of Hazardous Materials Professionals (AHMP).
"By changing the organization's name we will become more inclusive of the environmental, health, safety and security (EHS&S) industry, thus attracting a broader and diverse base of hazardous materials professionals," says President Harry S. Kemp, CHMM, who assumed the association's top leadership post Jan. 1. "The 'Alliance of Hazardous Materials Professionals' brand will appeal to all EHS&S professionals in the industry who have hazardous materials management responsibilities."
The new brand identity comprises the new organizational name; a modern logo; and a tagline: "Global leadership for a sustainable future." This new brand identity package was developed by a Branding Task Group, chaired by past president John H. Mitchell, CHMM, comprised of prominent past and present organization leaders and charged by the organization's board of directors to create "a new organizational name that will appeal to all professionals in the environmental, health, safety and security industry."
AHMP is a nonprofit organization that fosters the professional development of its members through educational programs, peer group interaction and recognition of the Certified Hazardous Materials Managers credential and other credentials as standards of excellence in the environmental, health, safety and security industry. AHMP is made up of more than 56 chapters in 37 states and more than 4,000 hazardous materials professionals residing throughout the world.
