Is Spring finally here? Hopefully, after the snow and sleet on Sunday and the Orioles' first win at Oriole's Park! 


I look forward to seeing some of you at the CHRA Conference
on April 8th at Hunt Valley Inn. Please stop by our booth and check out your answers to our grammar and professional speaking skills quiz. Also, check out the Workforce Readiness Committee table. We developed a wonderful resource to help you with your job search and interviews.

Grammatically Speaking 

Here are some more grammatical slips heard from fellow professionals and celebrities. Can you see what is wrong? What should be said?


"You sung the %$#$ out of that song."


"Everything that could have went wrong, went wrong."


"Him and I went to the meeting."
