Provides opportunities for continued growth, self development, and the opportunity to interact with other professionals in the same or related fields through conferences, seminars, workshops, and training programs.

I can’t tell you all how excited I am to be your TMHRA President this year! My association with TMHRA over the last 20 years has been, without a doubt, one of the best experiences of my professional career as I have had the opportunity to meet so many amazing HR professionals from across the state, attend conferences that offer timely and relevant topics and grow and develop both personally and professionally.
I would like to say “Thank you” to Lisa Norris (past TMHRA president) as well as the past TMHRA board for their leadership, dedication and desire to move this organization forward. Through their vision and hard work, TMHRA has continued to expand and now offers not only the opportunity to attend outstanding conferences, but also the opportunity to actively engage with members on a regional basis through regional roundtables and the chance for those who are new to the public sector to attend a half day seminar to help ease the transition from the private sector. I also would like to thank the many sponsors and speakers who help us bring quality events and products/services to our membership. Without their generosity and willingness to participate, our organization would not be where it is today!
Let’s face it-we all have challenges within our HR roles, regardless of our level in the organization. Wouldn’t it be great if we had that “easy button” to help guide us and ensure that we are moving in the right direction, making the right decisions? TMHRA can be that “easy button” if you actively engage the board, sponsors and each other.
For those of you who are newcomers to TMHRA, as well as those of you who have been members for years, I would encourage you to get involved! The benefits for you, your organization and even our profession are limitless! There are so many ways for you to actively participate in this organization be it attending roundtable meetings in your area or serving on one of the many active TMHRA committees. We learn by doing and by doing we can accomplish so much more through collaboration and the sharing of time, talent and information.
I look forward to another successful year for TMHRA and working with and getting to know each of you!
