December President’s Message

Hello to all of my PIHRA friends. Just a friendly reminder to those of you that are up for renewal for your membership. Do not let it lapse. It is easy to renew your membership online at Also do not forget to sign upfor one of the three Legal Updates in January. They are January 9, 2014 in Garden Grove, January 14, 2014 in Ontario and January 16, 2014 in Burbank. As always if you have any questions about your membership you can email the Membership Department at

With the 2014 year closely upon us, we are preparing for a year long birthday party. PIHRA is 70 years old next year. We will be celebrating in many different ways, with a big birthday bash at our Annual Conference in August. Keep your eyes open for the coming events.

This past weekend in Irvine we had our Annual PIHRA Leadership Conference. Over 50 of your leaders met together to be trained in their duties and responsibilities as a leader of this great association. We have great leaders who I know will be taking this association to the next level and want the best for this association. You are all in capable hands and I am excited for their dedication and passion for this association. We received training on understanding each other and those that we work with. We had expert trainers on this subject and your leaders will be bringing back valuable tools for all of you to use in your respective districts.

One final that thing that was discussed is that we as a PIHRA need more of a clear “Game Plan”. In the next few months your leaders will begin to design that plan and then in turn communicate it to the rest of you. The plans will be Tactical (1 year), Operational (2 years) and Strategic (3 years). If asked to volunteer to be a part of this process, please throw your hat in. Succession planning is a big in any organization and we want you to be a part of it.

I want to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I hope 2014 is your best year ever.

Have a great month!!!

Wayne L. Munyer, PHR
2013-14 Volunteer President
