The purposes of this agreement are to delineate a framework of cooperation between NSC and SAVIR, and outline guidelines that will govern interactions between the two organizations. Examples of cooperation included under this agreement include swapping memberships, placing two technical advisors to represent SAVIR on NSC’s Research Advisory Committee, nominating SAVIR members for consideration as reviewers for NSC's Journal of Safety Research, and exploring how to work together in each others research conference activities.

January, 2007 - Administrative Transition
SAVIR has benefited greatly from the thoughtful and energetic leadership of Bill O'Connell as our first Executive Director. However, Bill has assumed a new position as Director of Government Affairs with the National Safety Council as of the close of 2006. He may be reached at: 1025 Connecticut Avenue, NW, Washington DC, 20036; 202/974-2466; firstname.lastname@example.org. We will miss you Bill and thank you warmly for your dedicated service to SAVIR. However, while he may have left SAVIR, he is certainly not forgotten nor without positive influence on our direction. Even in his new position he has already facilitated important dialog between his former and new employers that should lead to important benefits for both organizations.
