February 2023 Chapter President Update

A big THANK YOU to the Programs Co-Directors and Committee for our January speaker, Larry Young. What a great way to start the week learning how we can be a valued strategic partner by enhancing our influencing skills. We appreciate the grace as we experienced a couple of “hiccups” that day. As leaders in your organizations, you know, it wouldn’t be a Monday or a conference without ‘em!

On January 24th, the SESHRM Board held their Annual Strategic Meeting to identify 2023 initiatives. Based on feedback from chapter members coupled with our vision for the year, we have committed to the following initiatives:

  • SESHRM Membership Experience – We would like to enhance programing opportunities/content for our chapter members both, virtually and in-person. The Student Chapter is also an area of focus for the year as they are an invaluable group of upcoming HR professionals. We look forward to having more intentional meetings with the Student Chapter to help encourage development and involvement in SESHRM and the HR field.
  • Membership Growth - This initiative will be centered around recruiting and retaining SESHRM members. We will continue to be proactive in providing relevant programming content and marketing the chapter by informing area businesses on the value of being a SESHRM member.
  • Community Involvement – There are so many phenomenal resources and organizations, outside of SESHRM, that are working on HR related initiatives (IE, Pathways, Legislature, Sioux52, Child Care Collaborative, etc). Our goal is to partner with one or two of these organizations to learn their perspective and to become a trusted partner in these larger scale HR related issues.
Lastly, we look forward to seeing you at our February Chapter Meeting: Embracing Differences in the Workplace with Mike Henke!

See you soon,

Julia Disburg, SHRM-CP, PHR
