HRABC, I am humbled and honored to serve as your President for 2017. For those who are new to our chapter, I want to take this opportunity to welcome you to this amazing community. You have joined an organization of HR professionals focused on the mission of Advancing the Profession and I look forward to your participation in our many events.
For those of you that attended the January event I laid out some very hefty goals for the organization for this year. Starting with our HRABC Young Professionals Group and our new Breakfast with the C-Suite program geared towards that population. This event will offer young professionals in Broward County the opportunity to meet face to face with HR executives from a variety of organizations to learn more about the profession and get guidance on their own career paths.
Our next area of focus will be community engagement. And by community, I mean all 380 plus members of this great organization. We have a calendar full of events that meet all your needs from regular educational programs to increased networking opportunities, half-day seminars, community events with non-profits in the county and our biggest event of the year our annual conference on October 6th.
I encourage you all to get involved by not only attending events but also through volunteering to be on committees and the board of directors. I look forward to meeting each one of you over the next year. There are great things happening at HRABC!
