BAHREC Recognized As Top 25 Fundraiser For SHRM Foundation

    By Nancy Nelson

    I was honored to attend the SHRM Foundation Annual Recognition Luncheon on behalf of BAHREC. This is an annual event at the SHRM annual conference, recognizing chapters, state councils and scholarship recipients. This year, the SHRM Foundation gave scholarships to SHRM 2015 to five HR professionals who otherwise would not have the opportunity to attend the conference. Their stories were impressive, including one HR director who overcame many obstacles, including polio, to work her way out of a dead-end job to the position she holds today as the head of HR for a large non-profit. Her career advisor told her she wasn't suited for a career in HR, which did not deter her. She now has the job of her dreams.

    BAHREC was recognized as a top 25 contributing chapter for 2014, one of only two chapters in California to achieve this honor. Sincere thanks for everyone who helped make this possible!
