Dan's Statement of Purpose
The drug and alcohol screening industry is currently at a crossroads and faces many threats, obstacles and challenges. First, is the continued marijuana legalization efforts across the country and proposed efforts at the Federal level to fully deschedule marijuana. My 33 years of industry experience working for both small and large corporations afford me a unique perspective of where we've come from to where we are today related to drug free workplaces and the push towards impairment and recent use testing. Having held a wide array of positions from being a sample collector, operations director, product manager, client & vendor relations director to senior management and officer of a company has allowed me to interact with all levels of employees at small, medium, large, and Fortune 100 companies. My positions have given me the opportunity to work with all types of vendors and clients in the drug and alcohol testing industry, and provide a broad perspective on what the industry is looking for. My experiences and perspectives allow me to offer a creative voice to the Board of Directors ensuring that the decisions we make are relative to all types of members
