NOLA SHRM News and Announcements
Hello NOA SHRM Members and Community,
Message from Louisiana State SHRM;
Hurricane Laura devastated parts of Louisiana and many of our HR friends across the state.
Thank you all so much, as we have been overwhelmed by the requests from so many to volunteer time, provide needed supplies and provide financial donations. As I have discussed with most of you, Louisiana SHRM is coordinating, with the leadership from each local chapter, relief efforts for the Lake Charles area by gathering donations and volunteers for a work day this Saturday. All volunteers will meet in the Epic Family Entertainment Parking lot (in Lafayette I-10 Exit 100) at 8:00 am.
We have put together a Sign Up Genius listing the items that are most requested. Please send out to your membership and board as you see fit. Please reach out to Sandy or I if you have any questions.
A huge THANK YOU to Sandy for helping to coordinate such a large undertaking!

Are you interested in furthering your career, building your network of professionals, strengthening your leadership skills and implementing new ideas within your HR community? If so, NOLA SHRM has an incredible opportunity for you!
I am Damona Barnes and I am honored to be serving the NOLA SHRM membership as the 2021 President. We are looking for new board members and would be thrilled to have you as part of our team!
Having members who are both willing and excited to serve their fellow members as volunteer leaders has always been critical to our success and growth as a SHRM chapter and to our individual growth as HR professionals. Serving on the Board allows you unique opportunities to lead, influence, network and develop competencies that may not be available in your current HR role. Additionally, HRCI and SHRM recertification credit is available to individuals who serve on their local SHRM affiliate’s Board.
If you are committed to your HR profession, willing to work on a team that shares that commitment while making it fun, and supported by your employer in that commitment, why not consider a Board role in 2021? To learn more about each position click on the link below.
Board Member positions require attendance at our monthly Board meetings which are the first Monday of each month from 5:30-7:00pm. Additionally, they will require varying amounts of extra time depending upon the project or time of year. Committee members generally require much less of a time commitment and do not attend board meetings.
If you are interested please complete this form or if you know someone who would be an awesome addition to our team, please forward this to them.
Nominations/Interest need to be submitted by July 31st, 2020. The committee will shortly thereafter evaluate the nominations with the goal of providing a slate to the membership in August.
Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
