This demonstrates our commitment to provide opportunities for you to learn, connect, and grow as an HR Professional. If you are interested in serving on a committee to help us in one of our strategic action areas, please reach out to me or another board member. Technology, Marketing and Communications, Member Engagement and New Member Recruitment continue to be our focus areas in 2018, and we would love to have you involved in moving our chapter forward.
