President's Message

It has been a great honor to serve as the 2019 President for OSHRM. Your continued attendance and support of our annual Spring and Fall conferences are greatly appreciated.  

I would also thank our current Board Members for volunteering their valuable time and being committed to the ongoing success of the organization.  We began our 2018-2019 year with several board member transitions and have had to learn quite a bit along the way.  During 2020 we will be actively recruiting additional members.  Current positions open include President Elect and Membership Chair.  There is also a need for volunteers to assist with education planning and conference preparation.

Our primary focus has been on providing educational topics for our members and the board is always open to feedback and suggestions for topics.  As we prepare for our Annual Spring Conference which will be held in May 2020, we are actively seeking presenters.   It is always a pleasure to hear about what our colleagues are doing in this everchanging healthcare environment.  If you are interested in presenting at the conference please feel free to email me at [email protected]

Membership annual/renewal dues can be paid on our website. Membership provides: free attendance to our fall education conference, many member-only website features as well as a discounted rate for the annual conference. Please contact [email protected] if you encounter issues trying to renew your membership. 

As a reminder, our spring conference will be on Friday, May 8, 2020.  Information regarding both will be posted on www.oshrm.com.

I appreciate hearing from you and encourage you to reach out to me at [email protected] or connecting with me at one of our educational events.
