Greater Baton Rouge SHRM


Dear GBRSHRM members,

Can you believe it is already summertime?!?  Our year has started off with a bang and we haven't slowed down.  I would like to take a moment to reflect on the chapter's achievements thus far in 2014:

  • Announcement of partnership with the Baton Rouge Business Report to sponsor the "Best Places to Work in Baton Rouge" awards;
  • Offered five (5) educational programs including chapter meetings and a mini-seminar on relevant HR topics qualifying for HRCI credit;
  • Presented two scholarships to high-achieving HR students at an engaging chapter meeting where we interacted with our future HR leaders;
  • Participated in a community partnership with one of our local high school’s career day;
  • Implemented new communication methods including an e-newsletter and a "Legislative Update" e-blast for increased information sharing;
  • Reconstituted committees to offer leadership involvement opportunities to members;
  • Hosted an HR Social and membership drive; and
  • Only five months into 2014, reached the benchmark of "Large Chapter Status" as designated by the Society for Human Resource Management [SHRM] by having over 301 members!

And we won't stop there.  We will continue to strive to meet your needs as an organization for HR professionals. If you have suggestions or recommendations, please feel free to talk to any of the volunteer leaders who serve on your GBRSHRM Board of Directors or email us at  We would like to hear from you!

Finally, I would like to personally invite each and every one of our members to attend our July meeting where Mayor-President Kip Holden will be discussing the future of Baton Rouge and how Human Resource professionals are a part of that impending change.  If you haven’t recognized it yet, it’s “The New Normal” in Baton Rouge. This will be a great opportunity for our chapter and profession to demonstrate our substantial presence in the business community. 

Best wishes for a safe and relaxing summer!
