President's Update


June 2018

Hello, BAHRA members, and happy summer! We are nearing the halfway point in our 2018 chapter year, and there is so much to celebrate! Besides holding many engaging and effective chapter programs and events so far, we are already planning an annual conference in September that will BLOW YOU AWAY! Thanks to a dynamic board, some amazing volunteers, and a fresh perspective from our conference leadership and committee, this event promises to be the most exciting and inspirational in recent memory. And that’s a tall order, considering the high quality of BAHRA’s conference lineups in past years! Please be sure to save the date, and note that it’s a FRIDAY this time: September 14th. More details on this expanded conference, including our keynote speaker and two tracks, will be coming soon. Be sure to plan to attend the entire day, because you will not want to miss it!

We are also working on a new and expanded website, with greater functionality, an updated look and feel, and more opportunities for you to get the resources and information you want and need as a member. This upgrade is scheduled for the middle of the fall, so stay tuned for a celebration of our rollout in October!

Finally, it has never been a better time to be a BAHRA member. With our expanded presence in the Boulder area through partnerships and cooperative relationships with the Boulder Chamber and other local leaders and organizations, you will find that not only joining, but becoming ACTIVE with BAHRA is a great investment in yourself and your professional career in HR and business management.

All of these CAPITAL LETTERS show how excited I am about our year together with BAHRA. The best is yet to come and I can’t wait to share it with you!
