Great Things Happening in District 9!

By Carol Lang, MS, SHRM-SCP, SPHR, District Director

Palm Beach County SHRM 

Lastly, please join us in congratulating Immediate Past President Tammy Lane and the chapter for being recognized with the “Spirit of Patriotism” award at the 2022 Leadership conference for their efforts in promoting the support of veterans and members of the National Guard and Reserves.  Great job team!

PBC-SHRM 2023 Board is installed at the January 17th dinner meeting.

Under the leadership of 2022 President, Jan Foselli, HR Martin was revitalized, and the 29% growth in membership is a testament to that effort.  Taking over the reins in 2023 is Jeff Devine.  Jeff and his team have put together a program schedule for monthly meetings that include such timely topics as emotional intelligence, strategic planning, and well-being in a multigenerational workforce.

The chapter selected House of Hope of Martin County as its charity for the year.  House of Hope provides support in food, clothing and financial assistance as well as life skills programs to local families and individuals in need.

HR Martin is also looking forward to implementing SHRM’s Dual Membership Release program this year.

Both the January and February chapter meetings were well attended; HR Martin is off to a great start.

HR Martin’s 2023 board members are sworn in by HR Florida District Director, Carol Lang.

SMA of South Florida

The Staffing Management Association of South Florida, based in Broward County, is a special interest SHRM chapter.  Their focus is on recruitment, staffing and retention.  While the chapter has not been as active in recent years, Noya Hastings-Richie, SMA’s 2023 President, is working hard to engage SMA members and recruit new board members.
