SHRM recently conducted a comprehensive study designed to evaluate and better define the Society’s relationships with our affiliated chapters and state councils. One of the exciting aspects of the study’s outcomes is a new focus on results and mission-driven metrics, with elimination of non-essential requirements. As part of this new focus, SHRM is revising its rewards and recognition programs – and we need your help!
To assure that the revised programs meet the needs of the chapters, volunteers and the organization as a whole, SHRM is establishing a volunteer task force. The Implementation Task Force will be charged with working with staff to update the association's chapter recognition programs for 2013 by:
· Providing input on awards and recognition for chapters,
· Reviewing options and prototypes, and
· Providing feedback on the feasibility of proposed programs from a chapter implementation perspective.
The task force will conduct its work between January and June 2012. Members will be expected to attend an introductory call in January and two 1-hour conference calls per month in February, March, and April, with additional calls possible in May and June. There will be additional work to prepare for calls, with a total commitment of six months and approximately 20 hours.
In consultation with Mariner Management, our outside association consultant, SHRM staff will select task force members in December 2011. We are seeking 15 individuals based on a set of criteria designed to ensure the work group reflects the diversity in our chapters. The criteria considered include:
· Chapter size
· Chapter Staffing (Staff / all volunteer)
· Chapter Member Make-up (100% vs. non-100%)
· Multi-Generational (within the task force)
If you are interested in serving on the task force, please click on the link below and complete the application form no later than December 2nd, 2011. Please note that selected candidates must be able to commit to attending all scheduled conference calls and completing any pre- and post-meeting work as required.
