Passionate, hardworking, and dedicated—just a few of the adjectives used to describe the more than 6,000 SHRM volunteers whose commitment to SHRM, their profession, and their communities epitomizes the spirit of National Volunteer Week (#NVW16). As SHRM’s VP of membership, I want to take this moment to thank every last one of our volunteers for all that they do—for their service to SHRM, our members, and our profession every day, 365 days of the year.
Dallas…a tough place for any Philadelphia native to visit. Yet given the mission - and company- I had nothing but excitement as I landed at Dallas Fort Worth last Thursday afternoon.

There is an instant recognition and affinity because we share some commonality in our experiences.

There is one HR event I would like every CEO to attend: SHRM’s Volunteer Leaders’ Summit, an annual meeting of our most active and engaged volunteers. Representing over 600 chapters and state councils across the country, these dedicated individuals provide local programming, networking and professional development. They are passionate about our profession, and they understand that HR must drive business outcomes.
