Fall is my favorite season of the year.  I especially love the changing colors of fall foliage and the cooler temperatures, although it seems we are having a heat wave.  Believe me.  I’m not complaining, because it will be cold and snowy soon enough!

HRACC is definitely not preparing for a long cold winter’s hibernation!  We have a very busy schedule for the remainder of the year.  In mid-October the Board conducted our 2018 Strategic Planning Meeting.  We discussed many topics, but focused on how we will improve membership engagement and retention in 2018.

We will soon be planning for 2018 chapter programs.  If there is a topic that you are interested in or you know of a speaker, please share that information with us.  You can email

On November 14th we’ll present “Challenging Bias and Prejudice in the Workplace,” and discuss strategies and gain practical experience for dealing with bias and prejudice in the workplace.  This interactive workshop will engage participants in several structured activities to learn more about themselves and others by critically examining assumptions and biases.

And, on December 6th HRACC and SMA are hosting a Holiday Networking event at the Pond House Café in West Hartford.  Donations will be collected for South Park Inn, an organization that works closely with the local Veteran’s Administration Homeless Service Coordinator to identify and place homeless Veterans.  The types of items needed include: healthcare items (soap, shampoo, deodorant); socks, t-shirts, hats, scarves, gloves etc.  Monetary donations and gift cards will also be accepted.  For more ideas visit the South Park Inn website:

It is membership renewal time!  Renew early, before the hustle and bustle of the holidays.  You can cross it off your “To Do” list.  All members who renew before December 1st will be entered into a drawing for some AWESOME prizes.  Stay tuned for more detailed information from the Membership Committee.

I look forward to seeing you at an upcoming event!

President, HRACC
