NOLA SHRM Announces Virtual Monthly Meeting
We Are Doing Our Part!
The NOLA SHRM March 18th Meeting is still on...Virtually! While there is a loud debate taking place locally and around the world, we are in a situation where we do not know many things. We do know from history how pandemics and global crisis are impacted by gathering of people. We also know there are limits to our healthcare infrastructure and it’s beloved workers. Business as usual is not in the greater good!

Many of our members are in leadership positions, working to determine how to address the implications for their organizations. Each organization and person will have to make choices in the days and months ahead to address our new reality. The NOLA SHRM 2020 Board of Directors has discussed this decision to go virtual and are working to ensure that your on-line experience has minimal difference from being in person. This is how we can contribute and demonstrate our understanding of the severity of today’s reality. This is NOLA SHRM doing its very small part in the grand scheme.
If you have registered already, no need to do anything - we will share the Webinar login information to you prior to the event. If you have not registered, please plan to join us by registering here. We hope that this online option works better for those of you are not able to travel to our Monthly Meetings.
We will continue to monitor the situation here in metro New Orleans, the state and nationally. We are the professional development provider of the Human Resources professionals in our community. Stay tuned to our website and social media for updates to other NOLA SHRM events. Please note that our cancellation policy is in effect.
