President's Message

Dear GVC SHRM Members and HR Members At-Large;


In September, your GVC SHRM Board listened to your request to provide attendees with talking points after each program.  This information will act as a starting point for attendees who are asked to present a report after they attend a program.  At the close of each program, the talking points will be available to all in attendance.

 

In October, our Annual HR Conference will be held on Tuesday, October 24th at the RIT Inn & Conference Center so reserve your seat today! This year's theme will focus on using Diversity, Inclusion, Culture, and Empowerment (DICE) to create a cohesive workforce that fosters growth and retention. There will be re-certificaton credits, plenty of prizes and we will be announcing our 2018 Joanne R. Schneider HR Scholarship award winner!   Register here!


In November, we added a column titled, 'Spotlight on Staff' as a way for you to get to know your GVC SHRM Board members a little better.  Joanne Schneider graces us as our first spotlight member in recognition of her incredible service to our HR community. You can find the 'Spotlight' below my message.


Again because of your feedback, we have begun sending out our job postings via e-blasts to all of our membership. If you are currently seeking a new HR role or looking for an upgrade from your current one, please check out our 'Jobs’ site for the latest in HR openings around our region.  Click here.


Don’t forget to check out our other upcoming programs here.  Your feedback is always welcome so keep sending it along to info@gvcshrm.org. Enjoy the beautiful autumn weather and remember your Genesee Valley Chapter Board is always here to support you and your organization through our continued programming, educational opportunities and legislative advocacy. 


My best,

Ann Maynard, SPHR, SHRM-SCP
