2021 President's Letter

    January 7, 2021

    Happy New Year! As we enter 2021, I am honored to serve the Indiana County Area SHRM for a second year as chapter President.  We have an exciting year ahead of us, filled with a new selection of chapter meeting topics and networking events. I am also pleased to have the following officers on this journey with me:

    • Laci Jansure, President Elect
    • Sarah Ramer, Treasurer
    • Amber Gregory, Secretary

    With 2020 in our rearview mirror, we as HR professionals now have an opportunity to put into practice the valuable lessons we have learned from a most challenging year, in how we interact with those we are given charge to lead in our organizations, community and families.

    The 2021 Membership Drive is officially underway!
    I am excited to welcome new members who have already started to take advantage of the benefits our local SHRM chapter has to offer.  I am also grateful for our returning members for their continued involvement in ICASHRM.  I truly value your commitment to both the chapter and your personal professional growth and encourage everyone to get involved in 2021, whether joining a board committee or engaging on our various social media and other communications channels (SLACK, Facebook, LinkedIn).

    2021 Membership  applications are available (see attached). Forms can be mailed to ICASHRM, PO Box 1252, Indiana, PA with a check, or payment can be made by PayPal. Please note, we are offering the 'multiple member discount' on local chapter dues for all members joining in 2021, as the format of most likely many of our meetings will be virtual.  The quality of expertise shared at our meetings, and the opportunity to engage and interact will be the same quality you have come to expect for the many years ICASHRM has existed.

    Important Reminders: 

    • First Chapter Meeting – Our first morning chapter meeting will be held on Friday, January 15 (invitation to follow). 


    • Bring a Guest – ICAHSRM members are eligible to bring one guest per year free of charge, to any of our chapter meetings (guest RSVP required).  Additional meetings for non-members are $25.00 each.


    • Student Memberships – We offer complimentary attendance at our chapter meetings to students enrolled in an HR degree program and active membership/participation in the IUP SHRM (Graduate or Undergraduate) Chapters.

    We look forward to seeing you soon!

    Reba B. Johnson, D.M., SHRM-SCP
    Chapter President, on behalf of the ICASHRM Board of Directors
