Greetings my fellow HR teammates!  As I shared with you all in my 2023 inaugural Letter from the President, I envisioned that Austin SHRM would be the chapter to emulate.  Since being sworn in as President, let me share with you just a few things that we’ve done in our first three months that puts us on the path to making that happen.

  • We increased our membership by 10% in Q1-2023 (January-March).
  • We had over 100 people attend our first happy hour event in March. You asked for it and we heard you so we’re adding an additional happy hour event to our lineup this year.
  • We have two Workforce Readiness Programs in the pipeline for launch this year.  Our Brainstorming Series on Culture and Engagement will be launched at our annual conference in August.
  • We have a new specialty credential professional development opportunity in the works.  More to come on this.
  • We’re focusing on bringing you more legal and legislative learning and employment law update events.
  • Our Stepping Stones program launched in March with 21 participants!  A full house!
  • We had 25 mentor/mentee pairings for our Spring cohort.
  • Thanks to the creative thinking of Past President Jennifer Charles, we’re having a special cocktail night before conference to recognize HR Excellence in our community.  Do you know an HR professional that deserves to be recognized?  Nominate them here.
  • Be on the lookout for community service events that all members can participate on behalf of Austin SHRM.

I could go on and on, but this letter would become a dissertation!  Your Austin SHRM Board has been hard at work focused on supporting our HR community.  As such, effective April 2023, we implemented a 2023 Strategic Plan to keep us on track and also for you to see how we’re diligently taking great care and effort to make Austin SHRM your destination of choice when it comes to professional development, networking, and educational opportunities.

Thank you all again for all that you do in support of Austin SHRM, your 2023 Board of Directors and each other.  It truly warms my heart when I see you all on social media helping each other out and referencing Austin SHRM as a source of support and information.

Onward and upwards, friends!

Because we matter.  People focused and Results driven.
