President's Message

Dear GVC SHRM Members and HR Members At-Large;

As we get ready for the second half of 2017 I want to review the previous months and highlight some of our accomplishments due to your feedback and support. So let's take a look at some of our new programs and partnerships.

In January, we launched the Joanne R. Schneider HR Scholarship Award and while the application period is closed we received some great candidate applications which our committee is diligently reviewing and discussing.  We also began our Food & Beverage Consortium that meets quarterly bringing together local food & beverage companies to share best practices.

In February, we partnered with Junior Achievement sending some of our members into the classrooms of 9th graders for 6 weeks to teach them how to prepare for their future with a curriculum titled, 'It's My Future, It's My Career.'  We will be looking for volunteers again during the next school year!

In March, we partnered with the Monroe County Bar Association's Young Lawyers to co-present a program titled, 'Defending an Employment Discrimination Complaint Before an Administrative Agency.'  It was a great joint venture between attorneys and HR professionals and one we hope to continue in the future.

In April, we partnered with attorneys at Harter Secrest & Emory LLP and retirement plan consultants at Focused 401(k) Partners to bring you "Operating Your Retirement Plan in Compliance.'  The feedback we receive from our membership drives the creation of these new programs and partnerships.

In May, we introduced our Podcast Series on relevant and timely HR topics which will be updated regularly for your listening pleasure.  Keep that feedback coming about other topics of interest.

In June, we are hosted our first Webinar titled, 'Mindset Matters: Brain Based Learning Principles for Effective HR Leadership.'  This will be the beginning of our lunchtime webinar series where HR professionals can sit at their desk, learn, ask questions and earn recertification credits. Sign up today if you have not done so already.

The remainder of the year will provide you with plenty of learning opportunities with everything from our July 19th program hosted by our Diversity Advisory Council to our September 20th global mobility program! Don't forget our Fall 2017 HR Certification Workshop which begins on August 31st and there is still room for more participants.

Stay tuned as we plan our 'Paid Family Leave' seminar and our 'GVC SHRM On The Road' program as we expand our programming to the other counties that are part of the nine county Genesee Valley region.

As always keep connecting and keep that feedback coming at info@gvcshrm.org.

My best,

Ann Maynard, SPHR, SHRM-SCP

President, Genesee Valley Chapter of SHRM
