President's Message


Thank you for being a part of HR Tampa! We appreciate every single one of you! It is an honor and a privilege to serve you as the 2019 HR Tampa President. If you are not aware, I’ve served in various roles on the HR Tampa Board from Membership, Communications, Technology (several years), Secretary and Treasurer. I understand the time, dedication and sacrifice that it takes for each of our board members to volunteer hours throughout the year. 

It certainly takes a lot of commitment to juggle a career and a family alone, but setting aside time for volunteer hours is our way of giving back to our association and our members. Each board position is unique in every way, yet we work together as a unit for one purpose, YOU. 

During our recent 2019 strategic planning session, the Board set priorities and laid out expectations.  We will work together and do everything with HEART. We want HR Tampa to be more of a community of collaborators and establish relationships with each other as well as with the business sector. We have so many talented and committed professionals that have expertise that may help others. Why should we keep that a secret?  

HR Tampa’s Past Presidents set the foundation for our association. The unspoken expectation is to set a high standard in everything that we do. As a Mega Chapter, we as a board have the responsibility to be committed to providing the best member experience with not only professional development, networking and community involvement, but also by making you feel welcome and excited to be with us every month.


We look forward to seeing you at our upcoming events!
