A Message from Our President
We invite you to join us for our next general membership meeting on October 8 at the Norris Conference Center, as we will be voting for several Board of Director positions. We are humbled by the number of Board interest forms we received this year, as the willingness to volunteer is at the heart of SAHRMA’s mission to #SERVE. Current Board Secretary Dawn Cunningham is running for President Elect; current Board Workforce Readiness Director Ernesto Escobedo is running for Treasurer; Dr. Adrian Guardia is running for College Relations Director; Phil Bohlender is running for Diversity and Inclusion Director; Heather Luebke and Ryan Traphagan are running for Marking and PR Director; Lindsay Hartman is running for Government Affairs Director; and Shelia Price is running for Membership Director.
Additionally, at our October general membership meeting, we will be celebrating Diversity and Inclusion month with a focus on Inclusion in the workplace. We will be welcoming special guest speaker Bexar County Commissioner Tommy Calvert and offering an engaging and interactive panel discussion, featuring Mr. Bohlender, an experienced and enthusiastic Global Organizational Development Leader; Lorraine Willias, a Registered Nurse and Autism Advocate; and Serafina De Los Santos, the Executive Director of the 502d Force Support Group (FSG), Joint Base San Antonio, Texas. We will also be presenting two awards to local businesses for Social Mobility and Employee Network Excellence. We hope you will join us for this very special event. Registration and networking will begin at 11:20 a.m. The meeting will begin at 11:50 a.m. and conclude at 1:20 p.m.
Finally, as you may have seen, on September 24, 2019, the Department of Labor Wage and Hour Division released its final part 541 overtime rule, setting the salary level test at $684 per week/$35,568 per year for exempt executive, administrative, and professional employees of section 13(a)(1) of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The total annual compensation test for a highly compensated employee is $107,432. These new thresholds for exemption from both the overtime and minimum wage provisions of the FLSA go into effect on January 1, 2020.
