Dear SHRM-LI Friends and Colleagues:


Autumn has always been my favorite time of year. The leaves are turning crimson and gold. The air is clean and brings with it a certain chill and freshness.


This year, however, I have mixed emotions and feel a bit melancholy as we enter the 4th Quarter 2014. While I still enjoy the anticipation and the bustle of the holiday season, I realize that this is my final few months as President of SHRM-LI.


I cannot begin to express the appreciation and gratitude I feel for having had the tremendous pleasure and responsibility of representing the members, sponsors, vendors and friends of SHRM-LI as President for the past 4 years. It has been both a rewarding and humbling experience.


We have accomplished a great many objectives through these years to maintain SHRM-LI’s place as one of the foremost Chapters within SHRM National. Although I will not list those accomplishments now, I will say that the continued success of our Chapter remains a team effort. I have been blessed to work with a team of volunteers that are unsurpassed by any I’ve ever encountered! I have relied on their continued leadership, guidance, and loyalty throughout my tenure. Without their support I am sure that we would not have been able to achieve our many accomplishments. My special thanks go out to the SHRM-LI Board of Directors, all the SHRM-LI Board Members and Co-Chairs, and especially the Executive Board, Christel Colon, Lisa Dippel and Nicole Quinn who were never at a loss to share their thoughts, ideas and experiences.


Again, I must thank all our Sponsors and Vendors, especially Jackson Lewis P.C.and Five Star Financial Group, an office of MetLife, for their unwavering support of our Chapter. It is through this support that SHRM-LI is able to continue to provide the programming and event excellence you have all come to expect.


Finally, there is a special place in my heart for the unwavering devotion and commitment of Linda Selden-Paduano, SHRM-LI’s Executive Director and Conference Producer. She has the unique ability to make a very difficult job look easy. Linda, I can’t thank you enough for the support and dedication you have shown me and SHRM-LI over these past 4 years. I am truly indebted to you.


I have great expectations for SHRM-LI’s future. The enthusiasm and abilities of our volunteer leaders continues to be an inspiration to me. And if, as President, I have left the Chapter successful in our many endeavors, I will consider myself fortunate and justified to have had your confidence.


Thank you all for the opportunity to have served as your President. I wish you a Happy, Healthy and Wondrous Holiday Season and beyond.




Annette Perry, PHR
