President's Message

Dear GVC SHRM Members and HR Members At-Large;


Normally, when we think of summer we think of long, hot, sultry days while our employees are taking time off, and we attend company picnics and casual Friday attire has become the norm.  In HR, this usually means we have a little breather before we gear up for open enrollment season, year-end tasks, and our staff returning from vacations while the days are getting shorter.

Please accept my sincere apologies now as this summer has been anything but restful!  As you now know, Paid Family Leave in New York State has been finalized and effective January 1, 2018. We know many of you have been deducting employees’ contributions from paychecks since July 1, 2017 and you are waiting for posters, forms and handbook language, etc. from your disability carriers and the Workers’ Comp Board.  Plus, you still have many unanswered questions and concerns.  Deep breaths!

GVC SHRM along the Business Council of NYS and Underberg & Kessler, LLP will be holding a morning seminar exclusively on NYS Paid Family Leave on Thursday, August 17th at 7:30AM at Temple B’rith Kodesh.  We will answer your questions and provide guidance on employee contributions, forms and notices, waivers, PFL vs. FMLA and much, much more.  Register here.

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, August 31st 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. Register here.

Another great learning and networking opportunity is New York State Council SHRM’s Annual State Conference on September 24-26, 2017 in Albany, NY appropriately titled, ‘HR Leading Human Capital.’ This year’s conference will have 5 keynote speakers, and an unprecedented 36 concurrent sessions to choose from over the conference period. This means you can get up to 19 credits for your SHRM PDCs and up to 16.5 credits for your HRCI certifications, including up to 10 strategic credits!! Please register here: https://nys.shrm.org/ny-state-annual-conference

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. Enjoy the remainder of your summer 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
