Welcome to SAHRMA
With more than 600 members, representing more than 200 local and national organizations, we provide a forum for our members to engage in essential conversations on Human Resources topics through our programs and events. We invite you to attend our monthly meetings, annual conferences, become a member and get involved!
WELCOME 2022 BOD!
October is election time for SAHRMA. Each year the Nominating Committee compiles a slate of prospective candidates up for election to fill the vacating board positions in the following year. This election year we had several positions to fill! All but two of our board members were completing their terms at the end of 2021. Because of this, it was important that the President Elect, Gonzalo Soliz and I started succession planning earlier in the year. We both understood the challenges with not only recruiting interested members, but also finding the right fit for open board positions.
When it came election time, we were very pleased to have an amazing list of SAHRMA members who were ready to step up to take on a leadership role on the board. In addition to that, we had several current BOD members recommit to serve on the SAHRMA board for another term in either the same or a different role. This valuable continuity will serve to strengthen the initiatives and goals of SAHRMA into 2022.
I’m very excited for the 2022 board to start taking shape. During the final two months of 2021, the new board members will attend BOD meetings, be officially sworn in by SHRM, and will work with their predecessors to transition and train in their new roles.
Please join me in congratulating the newly elected 2022 SAHRMA Board of Directors!
