President's Message

Dear GVC SHRM Members and HR Members At-Large;


Knowing you have a deep commitment to developing human resource students, we want to share a great opportunity with you.


On Friday, April 13th, 2018, GVC SHRM in conjunction with St. John Fisher, SHRM National and NYS SHRM, is conducting a Student Case Competition.  This event brings students from various colleges and universities across our state together with HR professionals who volunteer to serve as judges, team connectors, greeters, etc.  Overall, the event provides students an opportunity not only to compete but also to receive career mentoring, engage in networking with fellow students, sponsoring organizations, and HR professionals with a wide range of experience and expertise.


Student teams receive a case prior to the live event with a specific HR focus and questions to answer. The case study is created each year by SHRM and focuses on a specific organization with an HR challenge to solve.  The challenge can focus on any number or combination of HR issues such as Ethics, Communications, Employee/Labor Relations, FLSA, Management Practices, Compensation & Benefits or Health, Safety & Security. 


While competing, students fill the role of HR professionals who are facing  and trying to resolve the workplace issues presented.  Let’s all work together to support our students as they transition into the Human Resource field.


If you are interested in volunteering to be part of this event, please contact us by emailing collegerelations@gvcshrm.org and add 'Case Competition' to the subject line or by calling me at 585-969-1472.


Be Well,


Ann Maynard, SHRM-SCP, SPHR

President, Genesee Valley Chapter SHRM
