Dear GVC SHRM Members and HR Members At-Large;
With the holidays upon us, I want to take a moment to thank each and every one of you for your courageous HR leadership throughout 2017! Our Board has listened to your business concerns and challenges by offering seminars, webinars, programming and other resources to support you in your efforts.
As the nature of business has become more complex, HR professionals are tasked with leading ethical practices, creating equity, championing diversity and inclusion, and providing career support across their organizations. At GVC SHRM, we know our profession matters to our businesses and to our employees and their families so we will continue to provide the education, advocacy and support that is needed for you to handle all of these tasks and more! Check out the Member tab on our website here.
We have begun planning our 2018 program year with many great learning opportunities that are already posted on our website. Check out our calendar here. Our popular annual Legal Update will be on Thursday, February 15, 2018 as a half-day session. Reserve your spot here today!
For those of you who are thinking about achieving your HR certification or just expanding your HR knowledge, our certification preparation workshop will begin on Thursday, January 25th, 2018 at 6PM at St. John’s on Highland Avenue. Our chapter is committed to providing our members and HR practitioners in the Genesee Valley region with a quality certification preparation workshop to help you advance your career. Please register here.
