June Letter From Our Board President

    May 30, 2016

    Happy Summer Greetings to my HR Colleagues;

    There are some exciting programs coming up this June and a special event in July.  To start off the summer, we have Don Shoemaker, SPHR, SHRM-SCP, presenting Change and Transition Management at our June Dinner meeting, just in time to consider the impact on the employees and organizations when change is imminent.  As we have noticed with our DOL presentation in May, this is a change that all of us want to handle well for our companies and employees.  Check out the website to register and find out more!

    Another great privilege we have at our June meeting, is to honor a local business, Open Eye, for the When Work Works Award, during our Community Speaker presentation.  This award, given by the Families and Work Institute, is also an initiative of SHRM.  The award highlights how effective and flexible workplaces can yield positive business results and help employees succeed at work and at home.  I am excited to meet the two honorees receiving this award and find out how they accomplished this tremendous goal.

    In January, we heard your interest regarding hosting a special seminar regarding Mental Health certification, to better handle mental health issues as they arise in the workplace.  This special event is being hosted on Thursday, July 21, 2016, and is free to our membership.  Please look for the event here on our website to learn more, as there are only a few more spaces available. 

    Finally, your board is gearing up for the Legal Update, our all-day seminar which discusses current HR trends in legislation and law in New Mexico and nationally.  Check out our website to note who our speakers are so far!  This year, because we are partnering with SFCC, we are able to host a national key-note speaker for the professional tract, and also host a special tract for students interested in pursuing HR as an employment field. 

    Looking forward to seeing you soon,

    Sue Byrne
