2012 Spring Chapter Network To Do ListItem #11 from Spring Meeting To Do List: Cell Phone Distracted Driving Speaker Training
2012 Spring Meeting Handouts
Lead Distribution for the Network: Recently, we have been sharing leads with the Network demonstrating support of our Chapters. We are very pleased with the recent work we have done together and hope you feel the same. With today’s CRM tools, managing leads in a direct selling environment is relatively straightforward: sale leads are collected, qualified, and then deposited into the NSC’s CRM system for sales conversion.
We ask that you show your continued commitment to our lead management program by:
Be proactive. When assigning the lead to someone within your Chapter, set clear performance expectations, including standard response time and manner of response. At the NSC and at many of your locations, we use a standard of calling as soon as possible but no later than a twenty four hour period accompanied by an email.
Report back. The goal of this system is to make it easy for the Network to record and report on lead activity. The NSC asks you to simply use the reply button on the original lead for this purpose, in this way; we will be able to measure the success of our marketing programs.
Through this repeatable process we can build on our success and continuously drive efficiency and revenue for all of us.

On Tuesday, December 6 The Allstate Foundation, in conjunction with NSC, released a report entitled “License to Save” which included some never released national and state statistics. The report finds that if all states implemented comprehensive graduated driver licensing (GDL) laws, an estimated 2,000 lives could be saved. Further, if all 50 states were to enact comprehensive GDL laws, it could generate savings of $13.6 billion per year. Because state specific statistics will also be released, there is a possibility that NSC Chapters may receive calls from local media.

The National Safety Council applauds the National Transportation Safety Board recommendation to ban all cell phone use, both handheld and hands-free, by commercial motor vehicle drivers (except in emergencies). This ban is one of 15 new safety recommendations issued by NTSB this week. The call for a cell phone ban for commercial drivers follows the investigation of a March 2010 crash involving an 18-wheel semi truck. The truck driver was cited with distraction from cell phone use as the probable cause of the crash that killed 11 people. The investigation found the truck driver had used his cell phone 69 times in the 24 hours prior to the crash, and four calls were made in the minutes leading up to the collision. READ MORE...

Hurricane Irene is currently a Category 3 storm with maximum sustained winds of 115 mph and is located in the area of the Bahamas. The latest forecast calls for it to possibly strengthen today and tomorrow and pass well offshore of the east coast of central and north Florida. Although there are a number of different computer models showing its track, most forecasts project it to “brush” the North Carolina coast this weekend and then head directly up to New England. Under this scenario, the mid Atlantic region is forecast to receive high winds and a substantial amount of rain beginning as early as Saturday afternoon and continuing throughout Sunday. For your information, the building is doing the following in preparation:• Checking the exterior of the roof and perimeter of the building to ensure nothing is loose that could blow around and cause damage; • Checking to ensure that all roof, garage/driveway, and other drains are clear;• Verifying that sump pumps are operational and not impaired; • Checking to ensure that adequate tools & supplies (e.g. wet vacs, floor fans, dehumidifiers) are operational and ready to go;• Checking the emergency generator to ensure it is fueled and ready to operate if needed.We’ll keep an eye on the forecast throughout the day & tomorrow and provide updates as conditions warrant.

Millions of students will head back to school in the next month, along with thousands of school buses.

Progress Report on NSC Strategic Initiatives
From the desk ofJohn UlczyckiGroup Vice President - Strategic InitiativesI want to share some exciting news out of the U.S. Capitol. We have made significant progress in having National Safety Council strategic initiatives included in Federal legislation. And each of us can take pride in what the entire NSC team has done to achieve this progress.One of the key elements of our teen driving safety strategy is to get a Federal law passed encouraging states to enact Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL) laws. Last week, the Chairman of the Republican-majority House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, Congressman John Mica (Florida), issued the committee’s blueprint for the Reauthorization of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The Chairman said that the committee’s bill, when issued, will include incentives to states to enact comprehensive GDL laws. This morning, the Senate Commerce Committee chose to include similar GDL language in its proposed bill. We have now achieved, for the first time, support from a Republican-majority House committee and a Democrat-majority Senate committee to provide incentives to states to enact GDL legislation.

No Place to Hang Out: The Danger of Oil Sites
"No Place to Hang Out" tells the tragic story of Devon Byrd and Wade White, two Mississippi teenagers who were killed October 31, 2009, in an oil tank explosion.The CSB, which conducts scientific and technical investigations of chemical accidents at fixed facilities, is nearing the completion of a study of three recent accidents at these facilities in Mississippi, Oklahoma, and Texas. This study, which also includes an historical overview of comparable accidents over the past 30 years in which 44 fatalities and 27 injuries occurred in 26 separate incidents at similar facilities, represents a slightly different focus than a typical CSB investigation in that members of the public, all teens and young adults under age 25, were fatally or seriously injured in these accidents. In advance of the study, the CSB has released a video that highlights this public health issue which is available for viewing on its website: http://www.csb.gov/videoroom/detail.aspx?vid=43&F=0&CID=1&pg=1&F_All=y

There is a required state reporting system to be used by approved users. The instructors must be trained in MI in a 3 day DDC-6 Instructor Development Course. (We are working with the two MI based Chapters to do the instructor training.)Please check closely to ensure that no one wishing to teach in MI gets enrolled in your upcoming DDC-8/6 Instructor Development Courses.
