It is with great excitement and anticipation that I assume the role of President of IndySHRM beginning in 2011. I am following in the footsteps of a long line of passionate leaders.

IndySHRM has gone through a great transformation over the past two years, and we are continuing to make improvements and build on this solid foundation. Your IndySHRM Board has spent an extensive amount of time on the 2011-2012 Strategic Plan and one of the many objectives we will be focusing on is programming. Here are some of the highlights:

  • As Brian explained in the December newsletter and blog post, we have been challenged by our membership to heighten the quality of programming while also providing more focus within each area of the HR body of knowledge.
  • Workforce Readiness will focus on creating partnerships with the local military (i.e. Support of the Guard and Reserve), Work One office(s), and non-profit organizations to uncover potential needs in the areas of job transition, networking, interviewing techniques, and overall workforce readiness skills.
  • Our objectives will also focus on attracting more SHRM at-large members who may already be SHRM members, but are not currently involved with IndySHRM.

We are well on our way to meeting our objectives and challenges this year but as you know, the success of IndySHRM is 100% related to the strong and dedicated group of volunteers who participate in our organization. There is a lot we still want to accomplish and we will look to our membership to become more involved, help generate new ideas, and serve their association along with their HR community. As I embark on my own next step of volunteering to IndySHRM, I encourage you to also get involved and help us accomplish our goals!
