We Love Our Volunteers!
Amy Wright, SHRM-SCP, SPHR
is celebrating its 42nd year as a SHRM Affiliate
Chapter, and I am proud to say that
our chapter is strong, and actively advancing
Human Resources in Central Indiana, whether it
is through our diverse professional development
programs, our Certification study groups, our
workforce readiness partnerships and initiatives,
our partnerships in diversity and inclusion,
our legislative affairs updates, or our support
of four student chapters, we are working hard
to serve the HR community and our community at
We would not be able to accomplish any of this
without our dedicated group of volunteers. We
have a very dedicated and diverse group of volunteers,
and each person plays an important role in our
chapter’s success; whether it is in a Board
member role, a committee role, participation
with a student chapter, or volunteering at some
of our many community outreach initiatives, all
of our volunteers make a difference.
So, this month, we will be celebrating our volunteers
with a special volunteer recognition event. This
event will take place on May 26th, kicking off
race weekend, with some fun networking and activities.
If you have volunteered this year, be watching
for your e-vitation this week.
If you have not volunteered with IndySHRM, and
you would like to, you can indicate your interest
on our website, or you can send me an email at

Thank you to all of our volunteers for all of
your hard work!
