December President’s Message

It has been a good year! As we segue from one year to another we tend to reflect on the past and look to the future with hope that we have advanced along some desired path. For PIHRA, that hope is an evolving reality.

We began the year with a kludgy website and a mishmash of District sites, each with its own rendering of our logo and style. We end the year well on the way to a consistent professional presence that reflects our vision of being the preeminent Southern California provider of networking, learning and advocacy for the HR profession.

We began the year with an all-too-frequently inaccurate email roster for our Board that was confusing to all. We end the year with email addresses that provide a static means of contacting each member of the Board and District leader. We will soon roll out telephone numbers offering the same facility.

We began the year anticipating a conference that would be a source of pride. We end the year inspired by the success of that conference to design an even better 2012 conference.

There are too many successes to mention herein, from a more focused staff to a more dedicated leadership with enhanced succession planning at many levels. Both our paid and volunteer leadership should be proud of the strides made in the last twelve months and encouraged by members coming forward to play more active roles in our future. It has been a good year!

May you each enjoy a warm and pleasing holiday season spent with those of your choice.

Richard Propster, SPHR-CA
2011-2012 PIHRA® President
