Summer Comes to a Close, But HRACC Heats Up

Back to school blues for the kids? Disclaimer: Parental excitement is permitted. Vacation mode coming to end? Are you ready to “Fall” forward?

The heat waves may be gone but HRACC’s end-of-year lineup is hotter than ever! As we glide into September with suntans and vacation selfies, #TeamHRACC kicks into full gear for the last quarter of 2018. I know…where did the year go!?!?

Our HR Young & Emerging Professionals committee kicked the quarter off hosting a Social HouR with a beautiful view along the CT River on September 13 at The River in Wethersfield. A nice crowd came out grabbed a cocktail and took advantage of networking and good times!

Thursday September 20 is our not-to-be-missed Annual Employment Law Update. This highly anticipated program lead by Jackson Lewis attorneys will highlight the latest and greatest employment law updates that HR professionals need to know. This event is well attended so early registration is encouraged and pre-registration is required.

HRACC will also award our annual Jim Roberts Scholarship to a deserving recipient pursuing their HR career. Did you know that HRACC has awarded over $40,000 to emerging HR professionals since 2000? What an amazing fulfillment of the chapter’s mission statement in honor of Jim Roberts’ legacy and the HR profession as a whole!

Q4 is an important time period for the chapter, as it is for most organizations and also families. New members can join HRACC now and enjoy all of the benefits of membership until December 2019! If you know someone who has debated about joining the chapter, now is the time to “Just Do It”!

Your HRACC board is gearing up for continued strategic planning. It’s time to assess our progress for the year and start goal setting for 2019. A significant area of focus within that process includes program planning and membership engagement.  We’ll continue to solicit your feedback and action as we work towards our goals so keep an eye out for more info and volunteer opportunities in the near future.

“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” — Winston Churchill.

Many thanks to our current members and volunteers who continuously give back to the chapter in more ways than one. Your impact is recognized and appreciated.

I look forward to seeing many of you at the Annual Employment Law Update!
