Annual PIHRA Mock Election

This year at the California HR Conference, attendees had the chance to participate in a California Mock Election by voting at the PIHRA Advocacy Booth. No matter which measures or candidates are on the ballot, each mock election provides an opportunity to be informed about current initiatives and to get a pulse of the population and demographics reflected at the conference are inclined to vote. This year's mock ballot included California gubernatorial and senate candidates - see results below!

PIHRA's immediate past Vice President of Legislative Affairs 2014-2018, Sarah Prince, CEBS, conveys her deepest gratitude to the fabulous volunteers who showed up for us by manning the mock election booth and helping to make this happen: Ed Garcia, Ken Cornelison, Dana Mayhew, Noma Bruton, and Marilyn Monahan.

SHRM A-Team Advocacy Lunch at the California HR Conference

The California HR Conference partnered with Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) and the California State Council of SHRM (CalSHRM) to offer an exclusive, special advocacy day program with senior district congressional staff representing a number of members of Congress from the Greater Los Angeles Area.

The event took place on Monday, August 27, from between 12:30pm-2:00 pm at the Long Beach Convention and Entertainment Center in Long Beach, CA.

For the first half of the program, Representatives Mimi Walters (R-CA) and Lou Correa (D-CA) addressed the group about what issues Congress were to face upon returning to Washington in September, as well as an outlook for the upcoming November elections.

Following their remarks, attendees had the unique opportunity to speak with key congressional district staff of nearly a dozen members of Congress representing the Greater Los Angeles area. During the program attendees had an opportunity to share - in a mini roundtable discussion - the HR perspective on a number of federal workplace policies impacting California employees and employers. Most importantly, their participation in the program reinforced with these public policy decision-makers how valuable HR professionals can be as a resource for lawmakers and their staffs when debating workplace issues in Washington.
