President's Message

Celebrating our 75th year as a HR organization.

This year we will be celebrating 75 years in NOLA supporting HR as a Profession. SHRM just celebrated their 75Th anniversary in 2023. While we were founded in 1949, we did not join SHRM until the 1960’s. 

In 2024 we will also celebrate you – the HR professional, while not forgetting those of you who support the HR role. We are going back to basics! We look forward to seeing you at our monthly professional development meetings, HR on Tap, HR in Focus and Legal Perks virtual meetings. 

We live in a new reality! The trying times we have experienced over the last few years have without a doubt changed our workplaces forever as we know them. NOLA SHRM is committed to being the professional resource you need, and we will continue to make logistical and program changes so that we can meet the needs of our members. As the premiere HR organization in the area, NOLA SHRM members benefit from learning and networking with HR professionals and companies in the Greater New Orleans area.

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!
