Welcome to New York City SHRM!
Dear New York City HR community and beyond,
I am delighted to serve as New York City SHRM’s President for 2018-2019 and am proud to work with our 26 Special Interest Groups (SIGs), Committees, (Our new HR Tech SIG is being formed this year!) and the entire membership! We were the first SHRM and remain one of its largest.–a super mega chapter. In this digital age, it is increasingly important to join a professional organization to stay connected and to continue learning. It’s exciting to meet face-to-face at seminars and networking events that focus on strategic issues, best practices, and the latest HR trends.
New York City SHRM offers you a multitude of opportunities to connect, learn and grow with a community of passionate, talented individuals and dynamic programs to satisfy both your intellectual curiosity, as well your CPE requirements. Personally, I joined New York City SHRM and started slow as an occasional committee member, moved to a more dedicated volunteer, became Chair of the Professional Development Special Interest Group, advanced to Vice President of programs and now President, giving me a broad, historical perspective of both the HR field and the organization. It has been a rewarding journey filled with opportunities and possibilities so go outside your comfort zone and JUST SAY YES! Attend our numerous programs and our expanded, annual strategic conference, network with other members and discover common bonds among our diverse populations. My new motto is: Attend as a guest, leave as a member, attend as a member, leave as a volunteer! You’ll be glad you did! You would also be surprised how many of our successful board/committee members have been “voluntold!”
