February 2018 President's Message


February is the shortest month, but this year has many things going on with Valentine’s Day, President’s Day and the 2018 Olympics.  What a great way to see athletes and fans come together from many countries to support each other and most of all show support for their country.  In a smaller way, SAHRA and its members have opportunities throughout the year to impact our community by what we do individually and as a Chapter.


We have started 2018 off with great momentum! Our first event was the membership meeting on January 24th with Devin Hughes speaking on the topic of “Building Engagement to Connect People to Purpose.”  It was a very interactive and fun meeting which began with the fifty-eight attendees pairing up and engaging in a “thumb war” to break the ice.  If you didn’t attend and know someone who did, ask them about this exercise.  We concluded the month of January with a CA Employment Law Update webinar which fifty-two members “attended.”  


Twelve people attended the new member orientation on February 1st and we had a great turn out at the mixer (43 people) on February 8th at Kupros.  Kudos to Dave Delihant and Will Hixson for including a targeted networking activity and inviting our Emerging Professionals group.  This format was very popular so we will be planning something similar for the next mixer on April 18th


We’ll continue our activity in February with a kick-off meeting for the Mentor/Mentee group on February 22nd.  If you’d like to be a mentor we still have openings and I encourage you to check the SAHRA website. 


One of the board’s initiatives for 2018 is to engage members by offering new opportunities.  If you want to learn what a board member really does or more about SAHRA, then plan to attend our Open House Board Meeting on April 11th when you can see a board meeting “in action.”  Information about this will be on the SAHRA website at a later date. 


As we move forward in 2018, we will be trying new things, tweaking some old ones and “expanding our horizons.” Let us know what you’d like to see!
