"On behalf of the Pineywoods SHRM Board, I am pleased to announce that the Pineywoods SHRM Chapter was awarded as a SHRM Foundation Champion by SHRM National. This is a first for the Pineywoods SHRM Chapter and we hope to maintain our award status going forward," PHR Board President, Tarah Rudisill, said.
As a result of Pineywoods SHRM's fundraising efforts in 2012, the chapter has been designated as a 2012 SHRM Foundation Champion. The support provided by SHRM chapters and councils allows the Foundation the ability to provide opportunities available to fellow HR professionals that they may not have had otherwise, including:
· Research grants for cutting-edge academic studies
· More than 140 education and certification scholarships to HR professionals and students
· Educational resources including Effective Practice Guidelines reports, DVDs and Executive Briefings
These resources are making a big difference in the professional lives of the SHRM members!
The staff at the SHRM Foundation and the Pineywoods SHRM Board would like to thank the members and community supporters for their commitment and support with which they were able to celebrate a successful 2012.
