Letter From Our President

Welcome to the official website for HR-PAGE, an affiliate of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). Whether you are new to the HR field or have many years of experience, we are your local contact for networking, relevant information and professional development. We promote excellence in human resource management practices through education, advocacy and leadership development.

If you are not a current chapter member, please consider this my personal invitation to attend a chapter meeting and learn more about the benefits of both a local and national SHRM membership. Our monthly luncheon meetings offer the opportunity to meet with peers, exchange ideas, and discuss common problems. We welcome anyone with a need for more information or an interest in the field of human resources.

I feel extremely honored to be HR-PAGE’s 2017 President, and proud to be affiliated with such a group of dedicated and hard working professionals. The success of our chapter has always been and continues to remain a direct result of all of our Volunteer Board Members, Committee Chairs, and Committee Members. It is their dedication and loyalty that continue to move our chapter forward. Becoming involved as a volunteer is a great way for you to develop business and leadership skills and create key contacts in the HR profession and I urge you all to put your talents to work.

You can find information on upcoming chapter meetings and programs, annual state and national conferences, membership, and other upcoming events on our website. We encourage you to visit our website frequently, as we continue to add more information. You can also connect with HR-PAGE on Facebook.

Thank you for your interest in HR-PAGE. I am honored to serve as president of such a remarkable chapter. I welcome your feedback and look forward to meeting you at the next monthly meeting.
