    President's Report

    Dear Members and Friends,

    Well 2020 is off with a blast!  We had a great turn out for our January Chapter meeting, and I hope to see everyone at our February 13th Chapter Meeting on Domestic Violence.  Several of the SNM SHRM Board Members just returned from a Leadership Summit in Albuquerque that the State SHRM Council Hosted.  During this meeting everyone was introduced to the Best Buddies program which is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to establishing a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment, leadership development, and inclusive living for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).  We heard from several business owners and participants in the program that talked about their experiences.  During the presentation we learned that there is a Best Buddies in Las Cruces and we will be reaching out to them to learn about their services in Las Cruces.  As this is February and the month that is all about the Heart, I would like to remind everyone to remember to put the Human back in Human Resources, and you can do that by using your Heart.  As I was reminded at the Leadership Summit part of what we do as Human Resource Professionals is to Educate, Motivate, and Inspire, but we need to remember to be kind and look pass disabilities or differences as we are all better and stronger together than we are divided.  I would like to challenge all or our members to educate, motivate, and inspire at least 5 people this month and share your experience and story with me at [email protected] .  Just a reminder to you our members, you are our greatest asset and combined we are a great network of ideas, solutions, supporters, and knowledge.  Here is a personal invitation to all our members to please attend our monthly chapter meetings, which are held on the second Thursday of each month at the Las Cruces Convention Center.
