Amy Wright, SHRM-SCP, SPHR
I have had the pleasure of serving as your chapter
President for the last two years, which includes
service on the Indiana State Council of SHRM (INSHRM).
This provides me with opportunity to represent
us at the state level, and network with other
volunteer chapter leaders throughout the state.
Indiana HR professionals are well represented!
I am so proud to serve as part of INSHRM and IndySHRM.
We have a thriving, robust, diverse chapter, none
of which is possible without our members and our
volunteers. We have an amazing and dedicated group
of Board members; if you have a desire to become
a volunteer leader in our association, please
consider applying for a Board position.
We are now taking applications for certain positions
on the Board of Directors. Board members serve
a two year term; service includes monthly meetings,
chairing a committee, attending our programs and
providing strategic direction and service to the
association. Terms of office begin in January
The following Board positions are up for election:
Director, Legislative Affairs
Director, Volunteer Management
Director, Diversity and Inclusion
Director, Workforce Readiness
Position descriptions and applications will be
available on our website at www.indyshrm.org.
Completed applications are due September 6, 2016.
