I have two very important news items to report this month, and both reflect the importance and value of our PIHRA volunteers. First, for the first time in many years, PIHRA has a new District: Gateway Cities! Second, it is election season again and PIHRA is seeking candidates to serve in 4 key positions on our Executive Committee.
Gateway Cities: Last year, due to the strategic vision of some valued PIHRA volunteers and our home office staff, a need was identified: HR professionals in the Gateway Cities area needed their own District. With this goal in mind, a group of volunteers and our home office staff worked together to turn the vision into reality. It is not easy to create a District from scratch, but these individuals persevered and created a home for Gateway Cities HR professionals to meet each month to network and learn. In a relatively short but busy timeframe, we have a new District with a full Board and a robust educational calendar.
