President's Report

DSHRM Members:


I want to thank you for attending our May 18th meeting on “Employee Engagement: Going Beyond the Carrot and the Stick.” I hope you found the program beneficial and that you found some valuable tools and ideas to implement in your day to day practices.


At DSHRM, our intention as an organization is to provide valuable, educational and applicable information to our members, increasing your ability as professionals to not only succeed in business, but to thrive – in the ever-changing, ever-challenging area of human resource management. Please provide us feedback on our program and share any ideas you may have for future programming, networking and community involvement.


Our focus in 2017 is two-fold: We wish to educate our members on the benefits of SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP certification and renewal. Many members that were grand-fathered to the new SHRM certification do not realize that their re-certification credits are due. All of our meetings and events fulfill both HRCI and SHRM credit requirements.


Or second focus in 2017 is to raise money and awareness for the SHRM Foundation. We will be holding raffles at our meetings to raise money for the Foundation that provides scholarships and other benefits to SHRM members. For more information on the SHRM Foundation, or to get involved, go to


Would you like to get more involved in our chapter and share the experience of working with other HR professionals who are passionate about what they do? We have two openings currently on our Board of Directors: Secretary and Vice President for Programs. One of the oldest SHRM chapters in the US, DSHRM was founded in 1979. The mission of our DSHRM chapter is to execute the vision of SHRM - to be a preeminent and recognized professional association providing education, resources and expertise for HR professionals, addressing the most pressing, current and emerging human resource management issues. We would like YOU to be a part of that mission. Contact us at for more information on open positions.


We look forward to seeing you at our July 20th luncheon meeting, “Recent Case Studies in Fiduciary Failures: Why Plan Sponsors Are Being Sued and the Importance of Process.”  I know that the new Fiduciary Rule has Plan Administrators both confused and concerned. Our speaker, Eric Magyar with JANUS will provide clarity and direction for those navigating these tough waters. I know you will enjoy this engaging and educational meeting.
