First Ever LWHRA Volunteer Fair!Brent Schlosstein


Ever wonder what the Programs Chair does or what she's  responsible for? Just how does she know what to do and when to do it? How much time is involved and what kind of support and resources are needed? What about the amazing work of the Workforce Readiness Chair or the incredible efforts of the Membership Chair? Do they need help in 2014? Are you passionate about an area of HR and looking to share your energy? These questions and more will be answered on Thursday, November 14 at LWHRA's first Annual Volunteer Fair.


Our Volunteer Fair will get started at 11:00 AM and will run until 11:30 AM. It's designed to help you understand how you can increase the value of your chapter membership in 2014 by participating on one of our 15 committees. We'll have 15 different tables set up with chapter leaders and volunteers to help answer questions you may have about a particular committee. Don't worry. Not every volunteer position is going to require 5-10 hours of your time per week! Some positions might just need a few hours of your time a year. Other openings might be just a couple of hours a month. In any event, it will be a fun opportunity for you to advance your LWHRA knowledge and meet new people.


Lastly, our chapter is always looking for good ideas. Even if you don't have the time, energy or inclination to be a chapter volunteer, bring us your thoughts about things you'd like to see the chapter focus on in 2014. This is YOUR chapter and your opinion counts!


I look forward to seeing you on Thursday, November 14 where you'll learn the latest Healthcare Reform news. I hope to see you there!



Brent Schlosstein, President

Support the SHRM Student Chapter at the Lake Washington Institute of Technology


LWHRA has had a long standing relationship with the Lake Washington Institute of Technology (LWIT).  In order for LWIT students to participate in many local conferences and events in the coming year, they'll once again be conducting a fundraiser by selling boxes of See's Candy through Thursday, December 12.   


LWHRA members are encouraged to buy boxes at the November and December chapter meetings or by contacting Tami Covey. The LWIT SHRM Student Chapter is a 4-time SHRM Superior Merit Award winner, and we're pleased to support their efforts!
