Orlando, FL—HR Florida could not be successful without the hard work and support of the volunteer leaders, our chapter presidents and board members who make up the HR Florida State Council. This annual award recognizes a volunteer who actively supports, promotes, and develops the human resource profession through volunteerism. Chapter presidents selected the winner by evaluating nominees on the overall contributions the nominee has made to support the chapters, to advance the profession, and to drive council effectiveness through outstanding approaches, innovative ideas, and promotion of the Society and Council.
The 2011 HR Florida State Conference & Expo was a huge success, and I couldn’t be more proud and excited for our organization. Like those from our past, and also from our future, this year’s conference is the result of many years of lessons learned and a multitude of dedicated volunteers, both in the year leading up to the event as well as on site. I am honored to have led an amazing conference team in addition to having been a part of such a successful and rewarding conference. It was a great way to give back to the profession that I enjoy immensely!
