THRIVING AT #SHRM15!
Ana Swiger, President-Elect, HR Tampa
The 2015 National SHRM Conference theme was THRIVE! Where do you find almost 16,000 HR Professionals thriving in one place? At the 2015 National SHRM Conference in Las Vegas, where I saw several of our HR Tampa members, including Cheryl Brown, Jen Currence (session speaker), Lisa Murfield (HR Tampa Board of Director member) and Mary Cay Warner (HR Tampa Expo Conference Co-Chair)! Not only did I see other HR Tampa members, but I also networked with other Florida Chapter members as well as the HR Florida State Council members.
While at the conference, I made sure to attend the 7 am session presented by Steve Browne, one of our 2015 Expo Keynote Speakers and his session was well worth the early morning trek! Steve’s delivery was impeccable and his content was spot-on, he was entertaining and informative!
On Monday, Mary Cay Werner and I were invited to a SHRM luncheon where HR Tampa was recognized as #10 of 2014 SHRM Foundation Top Fundraising Chapters! Not to be outdone, our own HR Florida State Council was recognized at the #1 Top Fundraising State Council! The SHRM Foundation’s success is made possible because many of our HR Tampa members who believe in the importance of shaping the future of HR!
