NSC Elects Chairman, Vice Chairman to Board of Directors

The National Safety Council elected a new chairman and vice chairman of its board of directors at the 95th annual Congress & Expo, which opened here in Chicago yesterday. Joseph J. Ucciferro, president and CEO of Philadelphia-based Day & Zimmermann’s Commercial and Public Sector, is the board’s new chairman. He succeeds Ather Williams Jr. of Johnson & Johnson to the two-year term.

”Joe’s contributions to the National Safety Council have been considerable since he first became a board member six years ago,” said NSC President and CEO Alan C. McMillan. “His experience as a successful business leader with an exceptional commitment to a strong 24/7 safety culture are qualities that will serve the Council, our volunteers, our membership, and our chapter network well as we address emerging and urgent safety and health issues in a 21st century world.”

Ucciferro joined NSC’s Board of Directors in 2001 and was elected vice chairman in 2005. An active member of the Board’s Strategic Planning Committee for six years, he has also served on the Board’s Finance & Audit, Personnel & Compensation, Nominating, Development, and Executive Committees.

Also elected this year to a two-year term as the board’s vice chairman was Michael F. Hendereck, safety program manager for the Irving, Texas-based Exxon Mobil Corp. In this position, Henderek assumes chairmanship of NSC’s 60-member Board of Delegates. While the Board of Directors is NSC’s principal governance body, providing oversight over fiduciary and strategic affairs, its Board of Delegates provides direction on safety and health policy issues. The council also has a Board of Trustees that oversees development and fundraising activities.
