Dear Janet, ... Thank you.

However, this is not a retirement.   This is change in responsibilities to have a less demanding schedule.

I'm looking to go from 70 to 50 hours per week.  I would love to continue teaching and providing services and advice for LSI's students.

Best wishes ... Jim

Dear Jim, Thank you very much for providing education to thousands over decades of your work and dedication to LSI.  I wish you the best in finding a person to continue your mission!   Retirement isn't easy despite what is often touted.  You will do well!!
Best regards and wishes for your career transition,
Janet Baum, AIA

Since the 1977-78 academic year, the Laboratory Safety Institute has helped 100,000 science educators and scientists to improve their lab safety programs.  As we head into our 40th year, we are preparing for a transition.  We are going to hire a new President for the organization in the next six to eighteen months.


I would like the person to be someone who is passionate about and dedicated to making health, safety and the environment integral and important parts of education, work and life.  The person needs to by an excellent teacher and a strong supporter of our organization's priorities and values.


Give me a call if you would like to chat about this opportunity.  Jim
