ALEXANDRIA, Va., Sept. 17, 2012 — The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), the world’s largest HR association, announced today that six human resource and business executives have been elected to its Board of Directors for 2013.
The 2013 SHRM Board of Directors will be chaired by Bette J. Francis, SPHR, vice president/director of human resources for Wilmington Trust Wealth Advisory Services in Wilmington, Del. A SHRM member since 1990 and a board member since 2007, Francis will replace current chair Jose A. Berrios in January. Berrios will serve as immediate past chair in 2013, after completing his two-year term as chair.
A 13-member Board of Directors sets broad policies and strategic direction and provides fiduciary oversight for the 260,000-member SHRM.
Elected as at-large members to the Board of Directors by SHRM members were:
“We welcome this group of six accomplished HR professionals and business leaders to the SHRM Board. Their experiences reflect the diverse business backgrounds needed to guide an association of SHRM’s size and scope in 2013 and beyond,” said Henry G. (Hank) Jackson, president and CEO of SHRM. Jackson is an ex officio voting member of the board.
Five of the directors were re-elected to the board. Windley joins the board for the first time. Their terms begin Jan. 1, 2013.
Also on the board but not requiring election for 2013 are Jeffrey M. Cava; James A. Kaitz; Gary P. Latham, Ph.D.; and Virda M. Rhem, SPHR.
The election was overseen by Election Services Corp. and included three SHRM members serving as inspectors of voting.
