President's Message

Celebrating our 75th year as a HR organization.

Hard to believe we are through the 1st Quarter of 2024. How time flies.

I am excited to announce that NOLA SHRM was a top 25 fundraiser for the SHRM Foundation, coming in 5th in the nation!! Thank you to all you contributed to the Foundation. Don’t forget you can add a donation to your registration for NOLA SHRM events.

We continue to celebrate you, the membership of NOLA SHRM. Congratulations to Jessica Rareshide, Trista Thomas and Gina Bivalacqua for being our 1st quarter Member of the Month winners.  We have several great events happening the 2nd Quarter of 2024. We will be bringing back our fun Membership Drive event on May 8th from 4-7 at Blue Crab on the lakefront with food and drink for all. We will also have prizes for those of you who attend and bring guest. This event should be an amazing time. Also in May we will have our first ever half day Legal Summit on May 23rd at Delgado from 8-11:30am. More information to come on both these events.

We are always looking for more people to become involved. If you would like to be on a committee and eventually be considered for a board role, please feel free to reach out to

And lastly, don’t forget we are now a Dual membership organization, meaning you must be a SHRM member to be a NOLA SHRM member. You can still attend all our event regardless of your membership status as an affiliate.

I look forward to seeing you all during 2024!
