Featured Speaker – Mr. Don Cooper CSP, ARM-E, CPCU, MBA

Since 2012 Don has served as an adjunct instructor in the Illinois State University Safety program, teaching a Safety Program Management class, and is also a member of The Illinois State University Safety Program Advisory board. He was also a member of the ANSI/ASSE Z-15 standard committee on Safe Practices for Motor Vehicle Operations.
Don held the CSP designation from 1977 to 2020 (now CSP- retired), ARM (Associate in Risk Management), ARM-E (Associate in Enterprise Risk Management, and CPCU (Chartered Property and Casualty Underwriter), designations. He is a graduate of Southern Illinois University Edwardsville – BA and MBA.
