ACHMM Announces Name Change

The Academy of Certified Hazardous Materials Managers (ACHMM) will now be known as the "Alliance of Hazardous Materials Professionals™," the association’s leadership stated.

The new brand name was confirmed by the membership during a 30-day voting period on a rebranding proposal that ended Dec. 14.

"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," said 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."

"As a membership association, we have numerous career-enhancing benefits to offer all EHS&S professionals who are involved in hazardous materials management," said Executive Director A. Cedric Calhoun, CAE. “This organization is probably one of the best-kept secrets in the EHS&S industry. With this new brand identity we will lower this veil of secrecy to introduce all industry professionals to our association and open their eyes to our many outstanding membership benefits.

"Our new brand identity will help us accomplish this goal," Calhoun continued. "It will help inform all EHS&S professionals that they can join us and take advantage of the many top-notch professional development and educational programs, industry networking opportunities and other benefits we offer our members."

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."
