Why I Joined the Loss Prevention Committee - A Personal Statement 

By: Wesley Stimpson, LSP and Loss Prevention Committee

I have been an active member of the LSPA’s Loss Prevention Committee since the founding of the LSP Association in 1993; I was also Chair of that Committee.   I stay involved because participation on the committee gives me an opportunity to look at the LSP practice from a different perspective, that of a user of the service and a peer of the practitioner.  There are many subtleties associated with rendering LSP Opinions and running a professional practice.  The Loss Prevention Committee gives me an opportunity to learn about these subtleties and to help educate my peers.

  • Where else can you be in an informal setting with environmental lawyers, risk assessors, and non-LSP practitioners and learn what they think and have to say about topics of interest to LSPs? 
  • How else can you readily share lessons learned about contracting, business practices, and technical practice issues with your colleagues? 
  • Do you want to see all of the Notice of Audit Findings to gauge where your practice is and how you might improve it? 
  • Do you want to get involved and help others by becoming a Peer Reviewer? 
  • Do you want to have input to the LSP Board processes and procedures and have an opportunity to meet face to face with Board members and Department staff? 

Become part of the Loss Prevention Committee. 

Our next meeting is August 6, 2015, although typically the committee meets every third Thursday at 8:00 am. Contact the incoming Chair, Jim Zigmont, LSP of CDM Smith, at [email protected] for more information.
