Dear Members, Partners, and Friends of SHRM-Long Island,
As 2017 winds down, I hope you are enjoying the splendor of the Holiday Season and taking some time to enjoy the company of loved ones and a little R&R. This year has been a busy one for Human Resources professionals, with no sign of a slowdown next year.
To that end, SHRM-LI wants to assure you that we will be here to help you make your organization an awesome place to work as we continue to provide cutting edge resources, programming, and networking to meet every challenge and need. Our Volunteer Chapter Leaders and partnering sponsors have done a phenomenal job of offering relevant and valuable programs that address emerging issues and career enhancement. We promise to keep that coming!
Exciting things are in store for 2018! In the first quarter of 2018 we will be sending out a Member Survey. This will be the first in a very long time. It is our attempt to connect with all of our Members and solicit your valuable opinions and input because this is YOUR Professional Association and we want to be sure we are meeting your needs and expectations. Your input is vital to the future of our beloved SHRM-LI, so please expect the Survey and respond.
You will also notice a slightly different schedule for the Monthly Meetings and perhaps even a different venue, all intended to accommodate your busy schedules and interests.
Lastly, but most importantly, I want to THANK YOU, for your support and comradery and I invite you to become more active within the Chapter. As HR professionals we know that PEOPLE are at the core of every organization, and SHRM-LI is no exception. Our core is strong and vibrant because of you.
Until our next Meeting on January 24th, I wish you and yours a wonderful Holiday Season and a year filled with health, joy, happiness, and HR!
Christel Colón, SHRM-SCP, SPHR
