freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “SAVANNAH, Ga. -- The Succession Planning Committee of the Savannah Economic Development Authority (SEDA) Board of Directors announced on Monday the selection of Heidrick and Struggles to lead the search for SEDA's next president and CEO. The process will begin immediately and is expected to take 90 to 120 days to name the selected candidate.”



A R T I C L E:

The Succession Planning Committee of the Savannah Economic Development Authority (SEDA - www.seda.org) Board of Directors announced on Monday the selection of Heidrick & Struggles to lead the search for SEDA's next president and CEO. The process will begin immediately and is expected to take 90 to 120 days to name the selected candidate.

Heidrick & Struggles is an international, premier provider of executive search and leadership consulting services, including talent management, board composition, executive on-boarding and M&A effectiveness. The firm boasts more than 55 years of industry experience and a global team of nearly 400 consultants working from more than 60 locations in principal cities of the world.

The Succession Planning Committee launched an exhaustive analysis of national executive search firms following SEDA President and CEO Rick Winger's announcement that he would retire, effective July 1, 2010. The committee conducted community-wide focus group meetings and personal interviews to identify the ideal skills and qualities for the next president and CEO. Armed with that valuable data, the search firm will call for qualified candidates, evaluate applicants, and make recommendations to the committee for interviews and final selection.

Twice ranked as one of the best development groups in the country, SEDA has a clear record of success including the recent announcement that Mitsubishi Power Systems Americas Inc. is investing more than $300 million to build a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Chatham County. Home to the fourth largest and fastest growing port in the country, Savannah is positioned for unprecedented growth with the upcoming completion of the Panama Canal expansion. Port-related distribution is a major economic generator for the area. And, with Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation as the region's largest private employer, Savannah also enjoys a strong manufacturing base. Savannah's diverse economy also includes a large tourism industry, two regional healthcare systems, a significant government/military presence as well as a growing number of creative and technical businesses.

The Savannah regional workforce is supported by an 11 county labor draw area, fueled by more than 50,000 students attending the 19 area colleges and universities, including the Savannah College of Art and Design, Georgia Tech Savannah, and Georgia Southern University.

An independently funded organization, SEDA can act in the best interests of both the client and the community without the hindrances often associated with publicly-funded operations. And, Savannah/Chatham County itself, residents and government alike, have helped SEDA achieve its mission by continuing to invest in infrastructure necessary for it to remain a vibrant, world-class community long into the future.

It is expected that the search will still be in process at that time of Winger's departure. In order to insure continuity of leadership and proactive efforts, the board named SEDA Sr. VP Lynn Pitts, to the position of Interim President and CEO on April 13.

David Paddison, chairman of the committee, said, "The succession planning committee has been working for nine months to plan and execute a first rate national search for SEDA's next president and CEO. With Dale Jones and the professional team at Heidrick & Struggles on board, all the right ingredients are in place to bring about a successful outcome for our community."

Lithium Battery Shippers Need Hazardous Materials Training

Author: Lion Technology Inc.
Dateline: Lafayette, New Jersey (LAFAYETTE, N.J.)  | Wed, 19 May 2010

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “LAFAYETTE, N.J. -- Lion Technology, the nation's leader in regulatory compliance training, is presenting a unique two-hour training program to address the latest domestic and international rules for shipping lithium batteries. A live Web seminar hosted through www.Lion.com will be held on June 8th, 2010 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. EST/EDT.”



A R T I C L E:

Lion Technology, the nation's leader in regulatory compliance training, is presenting a unique two-hour training program to address the latest domestic and international rules for shipping lithium batteries. A live Web seminar hosted through www.Lion.com will be held on June 8th, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. EST/EDT.

Lithium battery shipments pose significant risk if not packaged correctly. If a lithium battery malfunctions due to mishandling, improper packaging, or inherent defects, it generates extreme heat that could ignite the packaging. Such a fire cannot be easily extinguished. This poses great risk for those transporting the batteries, especially during air transport.

The DOT mandates that all hazmat employees who "directly affect the safety of hazardous materials transportation" be trained and tested on the hazmat regulations applicable to their specific job functions and responsibilities. With civil penalties up to $55,000 per day per violation and criminal penalties up to $110,000 per day per violation, it is critical that lithium battery shippers receive updated training on the latest hazmat regulations.

The seminar will cover the current regulations for ground, air, and vessel shipping under the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), International Air Transport Association (IATA), and International Maritime Organization (IMO). Shippers will also learn how to prepare for the new DOT regulations that are due out within the next six months. These pending rules tighten the lithium battery restrictions by eliminating the regulatory exceptions for smaller shipments of lithium batteries, increasing packaging requirements, and adding new documentation provisions.

The Web seminar is designed for anyone who performs pre-transportation functions, such as battery classification, packaging, marking, labeling, or completion of shipping papers. It also applies to those who ship electronics or other products that are packaged with batteries or contain batteries.

The fee for the Web seminar is $229 per person. Group pricing is available. Registration includes function-specific training, student workbook, and training certification. Students can register by phone, (888) 546-6511, or via the Internet at www.Lion.com .

About Lion Technology:

Since 1977, more than 100,000 professionals have relied on Lion Technology to meet their regulatory compliance training needs. Lion offers comprehensive training and resources in the area of environmental, hazardous materials/dangerous goods transportation, and workplace health and safety compliance. Training is offered through nationwide public workshops, live Web seminars, online courses, and on-site programs. Regulatory support services and consulting are provided to assist industry comply with Federal and State laws and regulations.

Avoid Costly Penalties with Hands-On Training on Hazardous Waste Management Rules

Author: Lion Technology Inc.
Dateline: New York, New York (NEW YORK, N.Y.)  | Mon, 03 May 2010

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “NEW YORK, N.Y. -- Lion Technology Inc., a nationally recognized regulatory compliance training firm, will present its two-day Hazardous/Toxic Waste Management workshop series during the month of June 2010. The course is designed for compliance professionals who must be trained annually under the RCRA hazardous waste regulations. Workshops will be held in Portsmouth, Boston, Albany, Hartford, Northern NJ, Baltimore and Philadelphia.”



A R T I C L E:

Lion Technology Inc., a nationally recognized regulatory compliance training firm, will present its two-day Hazardous/Toxic Waste Management workshop series during the month of June. The course is designed for compliance professionals who must be trained annually under the RCRA hazardous waste regulations. Workshops will be held in Portsmouth, NH on June 3-4; Boston, MA on June 7-8; Albany, NY on June 10-11; Hartford, CT on June 14-15; Northern NJ on June 17-18; Baltimore, MD on June 21-22; and Philadelphia, PA on June 24-25, 2010.

The workshop provides hands-on application of the Federal Hazardous Waste Regulations (40 CFR 206-279). Students learn how to identify regulated waste, properly handle and store waste on site, prepare waste for off-site shipping, protect their site in the event of an emergency, keep records, and prepare their site for new regulatory changes. Students will also learn the additional State-specific variations to the Federal requirements.

Lion Technology Director of Corporate Training, Scott Dunsmore, a national expert on hazardous waste management, stresses that proper hazardous waste handling, management, and disposal is critical, especially in light of rising enforcement, which is now $37,500 per day/per violation.

"With a slow economy and budget tightening, the reflex is to go towards shorter and inexpensive training options. However, with enforcement initiatives on the increase, shortchanging your training puts you at risk of costing you more in the long run."

Tuition is $795 per person, with group discounts available. Registration includes course reference materials, networking luncheon, certificate of achievement, and one year of follow-up support. Registration starts at 7:30 a.m., and the workshop runs from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Pre-registration is highly recommended. To register, call (888) 546-6511 or visit us online at www.Lion.com/HazWasteTrainingNow .
