The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) says it’s time to reconnect and honor! Of course, that means that it is time for the NYC SHRM Annual Chapter Meeting 2020.
The HR population, worldwide, consists of more than 115 million workers and their families. SHRM, as an organization, aims to create better workplaces for them.
It promotes employer/employee strength through togetherness. Performing as an expert voice for HR, the Society leads HR professionals on workplace issues.
It consists of more than 300,000 HR and business executive members, and they come from 165 countries. SHRM states its purpose, mission, and vision as follows:
Our purpose is to elevate the HR profession. Our mission is to empower people and workplaces by advancing HR practices and by maximizing human potential. Our vision is to build a world of work that works for all.
Its member publication, HR Magazine, “is the largest circulated, most closely read HR publication in the world.” The Society gears it toward high-level HR decision-makers and executive-level HR subscribers. This award-winning publication provides readers with in-depth insights, analysis, and viewpoints on the HR world.
Aside from its national website, SHRM has a New York Chapter page. It contains information from the NYC SHRM Leadership Team. It also streams Twitter tweets from @NYCSHRM and reports in its “Latest News and Blog” feed. And, of course, it posts calendar events of the NYC SHRM.
NYC SHRM Annual Chapter Meeting 2020 to Take Place Online
Of course, the COVID-19 pandemic has changed meeting rules worldwide. But, SHRM will come through in 2020.
This year, the chapter plans to cover “Leadership Lessons from Combat to COVID.” And, appropriately, the Society has scheduled this year’s meeting online.
The Chapter will meet at its virtual location on Tuesday, June 16th, at 8:30 am. Meeting organizers have the meeting scheduled through 11:00 am. They have entitled the annual meeting “Time to Connect…and Honor! NYC SHRM Annual Chapter Meeting.”
This meeting follows its Wednesday, June 10, 12:00 – 1:00 pm webinar, “Leading through Crisis.” The annual meeting will feature the Executive Director of the Office of Professional Development, of the New York Police Department, Fred Tanner, as the keynote speaker.
It will provide opportunities for HR professionals to connect with each other. In addition, it will feature a review of Society accomplishments for the year and insight toward continued actions.
Finally, SHRM will celebrate its volunteer leader award honorees as part of the ceremony. Meeting organizers suggest that attendees BYOB (bring your own breakfast) to the virtual Chapter Awards Meeting.
Participation costs $35 for guests, $25 for SHRM members, and $10 for students and in-transition participants. Individuals can register for the meeting on the Society website, at NYCSHRM.org/events.
