President's Message

Dear GVC SHRM Members and HR Members At-Large;


On Friday, April 13, 2018, GVC SHRM in conjunction with St. John Fisher, SHRM National and NYS SHRM, held a Student Case Competition with five (5) colleges and universities across New York State competing for first place. Each team presented their solutions to a case consisting of a fictionalized company’s HR issues in front a panel of judges.  The teams were scored according to a rubric that included a series of categories and points based on how well the team met the criteria during their oral presentation.

GVC SHRM is pleased to announce that SUNY Geneseo’s team of Alexander Andreoli, Julie Holmes, Alexandra Majka and Kitrick McCoy won First Place in the case competition.


Second Place was awarded to Ithaca College’s team of Alexia Willis, Rebecca Meister and Damoya Nelson.


Honorable Mention goes to the following outstanding student teams:

Adelphi University’s team of Sabreena Khan, Justin Dinnanauth and Michelle Rappa. St. John Fisher College’s team of James Bergman and Tim Canfield. Daemen College’s team of Kelsey Amidon, Gina Benevento, Ashley Ciesla, Julie Karpinski and Michael Horton.  A shout out to Daemen College for including Freshmen on their team!


Each of these students deserves high praise for all their efforts in the preparation and presentation of a variety of excellent solutions to the case which demonstrated their understanding of sound HR principles. Well done!

Here is a link to our Events Gallery highlighting all five teams! Congratulations all and we are looking forward to 2019!


Be Well,

Ann Maynard, SHRM-SCP, SPHR

President, Genesee Valley Chapter SHRM

Your Career Q&A: What Not to Say in Your ‘Reason for Leaving’

Tuesday, May 22, 2018

SHRM Article ImageYour focus should be on what you can do for the company, not what the company can do for you. Your goal in going to any interview is not to decide if you want the job, because you have nothing to consider until an offer is on the table.
