From the President – March 2020

    March 1, 2020

    Hi Friends!

    It is hard to believe the winds have blown in March already! Make sure you get registered for our Diversity and Inclusion Member Program being held March 10th. Join us at the Hyatt Place at the Silverton Village to welcome Joe Coe Head of Diversity and Inclusion for Boyd Gaming to present on this important topic!

    Our Board has met since my last correspondence and are working hard to fill out the Programming Slate for 2020! If you haven’t checked it out, please visit to view and register! Our February meeting sold out and we had some fantastic feedback on our program presented by Dave Newton on Creating a Culture of Accountability!

    Collaboration with the community where an overlap of interest and ideas exist is underway. Most recently I met with Jim Andres VP of HR for the Las Vegas Metro Chamber of Commerce to begin thinking of ways to get our mutual membership working together to lift the HR community, promoting the idea of elevating our members’ strategic knowledge and being recognized at the table with the “C” Suite! Watch for more to come from this initiative!

    Cooperation with the State Council and Northern Nevada Chapter continues as we gear up for the September 25th State Conference here in Las Vegas at the newly renovated Palace Station. For details in real time, visit Find out more about tapping into your inner HR Super Powers!

    And now word from our Sponsors... No seriously, we need some words and we need some sponsors… Providing man-power, talent and dedication to a non-profit is largely borne by our dedicated volunteers. But that dedication only takes us so far. We also have to cover financial expenses for venues, refreshments, operational overhead such as hardware, software and more. In exchange for their sponsorship we take the time to allow them to provide us with information about goods and services relative to our industry and we are able to become more knowledgeable about options for our businesses. As a dues-free 100% Chapter, we will always carefully balance sponsorship time and programming time. I thank-you in advance for promoting Chapter sponsorship whenever possible. For all of the details simply point any potential sponsors to:

    Finally, thank you! Thanks for all you do each day to promote the wellbeing of your teams, our community and our profession! I welcome your direct feedback! You may contact any time!
