Dear Friends.

I hope you are enjoying this holiday season and that the New Year brings you health, happiness, success and contentment.

Before I go further, many thanks to Karen Duffy and Marilyn Messer for planning a very nice year-end dinner.

We are looking forward to seeing you in 2013. Our calendar is at you’d like to save the dates.

Would you like to volunteer to help plan and book the meetings in 2013? On 1/16/13 in Mountain View, our volunteers will meet, determine the speakers and topics, and decide which events they’ll help plan. Many people list this volunteer activity on their LinkedIn profiles and resumes. Details are at it’d be great to have YOU join us!

Our Volunteers created a great and varied line-up of topics and speakers for this past year. The 2012 Volunteers included: Belina Pignataro, Christine Young, Delbar Jahanian, CMFC, Jenny Vonderwerth, Judy Pearce, Karen Duffy, Krissy Vollersen, Marilyn Messer, Michael Benjaminson, Susan Harvell, Tatyana Dorokhova and Trudy Schapansky.

We had fantastic speakers in 2012 including: Jenny Kahn, PHR, Mary Wang, Susan Miller, SPHR, CCP, Jeanine DeBacker, Terri Griffith, Connie Hampton, Deanna J. Mouser, Margaret O’Hanlon, Eric Petersen and Jenny Vonderwerth. Topics ranged from employment legal updates and workplace investigations to compensation, targeted networking to negotiation skills, the 401(k) and fiduciary liability to building a corporate wellness program. Many of these topics and speakers can also be seen at paid events, and many topics are of interest to those not in Human Resources.
