Message From the President

Greetings SHRM STL Members! Summer is flying by! Hope you all get a chance to take some time off and relax. We all know that the HR profession can be extremely challenging, and we all need to get away from it occasionally.
The new logo is almost complete, and we will being releasing information about our new name in conjunction with promotion of the conference to be held October 12th at Ameristar Casino Resort Spa. We are finalizing the program and have many great presenters and topics!

I am looking forward to the July program with attorney Susan Bassford Wilson discussing "Sexting, Security & Social Media: Digital Dilemmas in the Workplace & How to Solve Them". Susan presented a similar program at our conference last year, and the room was jam packed with people, so it was decided to bring the program to a monthly meeting. With the rate of change in the realm of technology and problems presented in our "instant" world, we can all make good use of this information.

If you have any thoughts, comments or ideas that you would like to share related to our Chapter, please don't hesitate to contact any of your Board Members. There were some logistical concerns about the June meeting expressed on the surveys. The summer meeting location is only temporary, and meetings will reconvene at the Renaissance in September. We have had so many people attend the summer symposia that it was necessary to find a larger venue.

Enjoy your summer, and I look forward to seeing you all soon! We're "Going the Distance!"

Linda Pipitone
