Past Presidents

The photo above features Michigan Safety Conference Past Presidents (note the historical green jacket). Senior board members are given a “green jacket” pin when they have served 10 years on the board of directors, in recognition of the historical significance of the green jacket that former leaders used to wear to make them visible to conference attendees during the event.
