The Central Louisiana Society for Human Resource Management (CLSHRM) recently installed their 2017 Board of Directors at their annual Celebration of Accomplishments. Board members will carry out specific duties throughout the year. One of the most important is that of promoting the Human Resources profession within the local business community.
"CLSHRM plans to bring job seekers and employers together through our hugely successful Annual Job Fair to be held in May; as well as promote the importance of strong Human Resources practices and on the job HR knowledge to local area businesses," commented Lori Patrick, HR Manager for Distran Steel and CLSHRM's 2017 President.
CLSHRM is an affiliate of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). SHRM is the world's largest association devoted to human resource management. Representing more than 250,000 members in over 140 countries, the Society serves the needs of HR professionals and advances the interests of the HR profession. Founded in 1948, SHRM has more than 575 affiliated chapters within the United States and subsidiary offices in China and India.
"We are able to take the resources and tools provided by our national programs and bring them home locally," said Joe Sharp HR Manager at Diamond B Construction and the 2018 President-Elect. "This allows us the opportunity for ongoing, up-to-date education, certification programs and networking for professionals in all of Central Louisiana, who have a vested interest in the Human Resources field."
