Climbing Down the Career Ladder

Yo, check it out! James Chaves, the OG Loss Prevention Specialist at NMC, is finally hanging up his hat and calling it quits on June 30th after a solid 18 years of schooling counties on how to keep it real and stay safe. This dude has been the ultimate go-to guy for all things OSHA, keeping counties on point and out of trouble. Not to mention, he helped launch the legendary RAP program back in 2006, which is still going strong today. Big ups to James on his retirement - we got your back, man! Enjoy that well-deserved chill retirement life!
