Volunteer Spotlight: Denise Brandt
Preet Kuar, VP of Member Services, nominated this month’s Volunteer Spotlight. Preet was in search of additional venues to use for various SAHRA events in order to meet the needs of SAHRA’s members across the region. Preet reached out to a contact at National University in Rancho Cordova. Preet asked if they’d be able to host SAHRA events such as membership meetings, membership orientations and mixers. The volunteer spotlight responded immediately and was extremely accommodating and began to block conference rooms and classrooms for future events. At a recent mixer, the Volunteer Spotlight and her staff went above and beyond to make SAHRA members feel welcome. They had signs to direct members to rooms, helped move furniture around to accommodate needs and provided technical equipment. SAHRA greatly appreciates her efforts to make sure our events run smoothly and are successful. The volunteer spotlight is Denise Brandt.

Hiring Assistance Program
The Sacramento Area Human Resource Association (SAHRA) and the North State Building Industry Foundation have come together in partnership. This partnership begins as a local program debuts that will reward employers for hiring during difficult economic times.
The Hiring Assistance Program, administered through SETA/Sacramento Works with federal funds, offers up to $5,000 per employee for up to ten new hires. Potential employees must be long-term unemployed/underemployed and reside in the greater Sacramento area to be eligible.
