Before I go on, we have a discount to the HR Symposium and it's posted on our Discounts page. Be sure to check out the other discounts listed.
I like to present food for thought before we get to our group announcements.
Many thanks to last month's speaker, Mary Wang. Mary presented "Workplace Investigations: The Essential Law and Best Practices for Handling Employee Relations Issues and Conflict Resolution" and provided us with a PowerPoint and a PDF download, available on our Previous Speakers page. Our volunteers did a fabulous job of organizing the event. Thanks to our volunteers Trudy Schapansky and Krissy Vollersen for their hard work.
This month I will address a very different matter.
I have another blog about parenting difficult teens and dysfunctional family relationships, but I just did a separate post about how you can help save a 23 year old's life. Jack Chin went to my son's high school and was in college when he was diagnosed last year with leukemia. He needs a bone marrow transplant to survive and his family members, including his twin brother, are not a match. His best chance for a match is in the Chinese community. Please read more and view his sites listed on my blog. Will you help?
We now have a page on our site and for advertising. I have links to Amazon products at present and may add other affiliates. You'll notice our site also has Google ads, and you're welcome to click on relevant links. I am going to customize this when I have time to reflect different categories: HR and Business, Entertainment and Shopping. The focus will be HR and Business, but we are human beings and need relaxation, too!

Because of this volunteer work, family, friends and paid work, unfortunately, I can’t mentor you, and please don’t send me unsolicited resumes. I wish I had the time to individually mentor you, but I don’t. Come to an event and meet someone who can help. I receive a lot of unsolicited resumes (from our group and strangers) and if I’m recruiting for a position or I’m paid to work on the resume, that’s one thing, but other than that, I’ve got other things on my plate. I refer people to the forum at www.ourhrsite.com/forum. See the blog post for more thoughts. http://marciastein.blogspot.com/2009/02/setting-boundaries-and-professionalism.html
