Happy New Year SHRM-Memphis!
My name is Brigette B. Wilson and it is a privilege and honor to serve as SHRM-Memphis President for the 2020 – 2021 term. I've had the opportunity to serve on the board since 2015 and look forward to following in the steps of the amazing past leadership.
As we close out 2019, I must acknowledge our many successes which are largely due to the overwhelming support from you, our remarkable members. I've charged the board and myself with the task of listening to the needs of our members while providing professional development and programming which reflects the diversity of Memphis. The board has been working diligently to ensure that we provide you with programming that touches on the many topics and trends you and your peers are facing in the industry.
As we enter into a new decade, I'm thrilled about all of the amazing opportunities we have planned for 2020, especially the 45th Annual Tennessee Conference and Expo which we are hosting at the newly renovated Memphis Cook Convention Center November 1 – 4. Other exciting programs include our signature events such as our Legal Day and Inclusive Diversity Conference, as well as our monthly programs.
I am honored to work with an exceptionally talented executive board. Each board member has committed to the continued support of you our members and furthers the professional development of HR professionals in the Memphis and Mid-South area.
I would also be remiss if I did not acknowledge our phenomenal partners/sponsors who not only fund a large portion of our programs and activities but are engaged with us throughout the year. On behalf of SHRM-Memphis, I would like to take a moment to thank them for their continued contributions and support.
Please accept this as a personal invitation to attend our upcoming HR Connect scheduled for Tuesday, January 21, 2020, at the Crescent Club. I look forward to seeing you there or one of our other monthly meetings, sharing ideas and learning more from you on how we can better support you in the complex, challenging and rewarding world of Human Resource Management.
Let's transform the world of HR, together forward!
