As I sit and reflect on serving you as the President of SJSHRM for the last two years I think about how incredibly blessed I have been to be a part of such great group of professionals. I could not have asked for a better board of directors. We received your ballots and the new board of directors has been nominated and voted in by the membership. I am very excited to stay that Des Matison will be your new President and Kris Gaskins will be your President Elect, they will be taking over their new roles on January 1, 2021.
Although 2020 has definitely been a very challenging year for all there have been some opportunities as well. When the SIP came into place in March we quickly rallied to find alternative sources to be able to continue to bring you current and relevant human resources information. The team stepped up and reformatted our monthly delivery to a webinar format, who would have thought that we would have to continue that for the rest of the year. We are disappointed that we were not able to schedule an in-person labor law conference this January, but we are still going to be able to deliver content to you to prepare you for the 2021 labor law changes. If you haven’t registered yet please make sure to do so soon, it will be a great half day conference.
I am looking forward to continue to work with your board and help support them as we move into 2021. Let us continue to do the right thing and take care of our employees, ourselves and our families.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
President – SJSHRM
