Summer Months Doesn’t Mean Time Off for Dodge County Chapter
As we move into the summer months here in Wisconsin, Dodge County SHRM is hard at work preparing for our Fall Kick-Off event that we hold in September. That event brings current members together after a few months of not having a monthly lunch meeting and allows everyone to catch up on what has been happening in the world of HR. This event also allows the members to bring possible new members and show them why it is to their advantage to be a member of Dodge County SHRM. Our kick-off event is always well attended and everyone enjoys the networking, food, and prizes!
The executive board never takes time off and we continue our monthly meetings. We work with local businesses and the community to help find ways to fill open positions and write grants that can assist in this process. Dodge County SHRM is well represented in the Manufacturer’s Business Alliance that is working hard on making sure that the needs of area manufacturers are met. By working together it makes it easier to find candidates to fill open positions and to find out what the needs are of both the manufacturing companies and those looking for a job.
We also continue to work on building our membership and are well on our way to meeting our membership goal for 2018. One of the ways we are building our membership is by having executive members reach out to people that were members at one time and for one reason or another are not longer a part of our chapter. If these past members are not interested in becoming a member again, we find out the reason why, so that we can make changes if need be.
Our chapter strives to be the best chapter we can and to offer our members things that will allow them to continue to be successful in their roles both in the workplace and in the community. Dodge County SHRM is very proud to have received TWO PINNACLE AWARDS, one in 2015 and the other in 2017, along with several other awards, but the Pinnacles are at the center of the awards we have received. We have proven that hard work, and dedication to our chapter, pays off.
Always strive to be the best chapter that you can be, set your 2019 goals high, and don’t give up until your chapter has reached those goals!
