Introducing #ALLinSTEP Captains: Betsy, Deanna and Elissa

Next Monday, registration will open for the #ALLinSTEP Challenge at #SHRM17. In anticipation of this kick-off we will be sharing more about the team captains to help you decide what team to join!

Meet Betsy, Deanna and Elissa—the SHRM Foundation Board Chair, a member of the SHRM HR Team and SHRM’s Vice President of Membership.

Registration for the Step Challenge opens on Monday, May 15th—choose your team wisely!

Betsy “The Power Stomper” Larson leads the Foundation Stompers Team
Betsy is Chair of the SHRM Foundation Board of Directors and a very active runner!

Betsy’s pitch to prospective teammates:

Why wouldn't they want to join my team? We will rock the Conference – hands down, or is that feet down!! If we rise to the challenge as a team and raise the most dollars (I mean top dollars), I will eat my first raw oyster in honor of the team's accomplishment live on social media. And let's hope I don't have to do this, as it won't be pretty!!

Deanna “Dance Machine” Muñoz leads the Team ALL IN for Steppin’ Team
Deanna is an HR Generalist at SHRM and plans to step and dance her way to a Step Challenge victory.

Why you should join Deanna’s team:

I live for this type of friendly competition! I was that girl in high school who was involved with anything school spirit-related, so this is right up my alley. I enjoy finding ways to get others involved and feel included while also having a little fun with it, too. I'll do my very best to stay active by partaking in some of Walter's workouts throughout the duration of conference and inviting my teammates to join me. I'll encourage my teammates by sending daily inspirational quotes via the app about healthy living and getting moving (and maybe even some SHRM Foundation facts). I'll even send a "get moving" song every morning like Gloria Estefan's, “Get on Your Feet,” as extra motivation!

Elissa “Happy Heels” O’Brien leads the SHRM Super Steppers Team
Elissa is Vice President of Membership at SHRM and is ready to lead her team to the Step Challenge victory wearing great shoes every step of the journey!

Why Elissa is excited to lead the Super Steppers team:

It’s no secret to my colleagues that I love a great pair of heels—it’s also no secret that a great pair of heels doesn’t manage to slow me down! I have traveled across the nation connecting with amazing SHRM members, and I know that we can build an awesome team of steppers. As a former recruiter, I’m committed to getting the best talent for the Super Steppers team. Join me and go all in at #SHRM17!

This week we have been introducing you to each of the #ALLinSTEP Challenge Captains to help you decide what team to join before registration launches on Monday, May 15. We’ll post one more introduction blog on Monday morning, before the registration goes live Monday afternoon!
