President's Message

Heather Vogel, MHR, SPHR

Heather  Vogel

Wow, what a great state leadership conference we had on January 7th. With over 204 chapter leaders in attendance, the day was chock full of education, networking and of course, fun! Many, many thanks to our president-elect Joyce Chastain, SPHR and our wonderful district director team for working so hard to provide an outstanding conference experience. I for one, will always remember to say, yes, Yes, YES!

As we announced at the January council meeting, our mission for 2012 is “to be the catalyst for shaping energetic, educated and engaged HR professionals who have an influence on the profession and the organizations they serve.” To meet this mission, we intend to:

  • Build Relationships with Our Chapters – to foster collaborative partnerships with our chapter leaders and our members to further the HR profession in Florida.
  • Increase Our Membership – to boost the number of HR pros in chapters and in SHRM who can reap the many benefits of membership.
  • Offer a World-Class State Conference – to increase the percentage of global HR professionals, from students to senior-level directors, who come to the conference to learn, connect, and engage.
  • Advance the HR Platform – to set the stage for strategic insight and knowledge regarding talent in organizations, from legislative advocacy to building the next generation of business leaders.
