A Message from the HR Florida State Council Executive Committee

The Hurricane has passed and now it’s time to recover. The Executive Committee continues to keep everyone in our thoughts, and if there is anything we can do to help, please let us know. Highlighted in this section you will find online resources and reminders pertaining to coping with the storm’s aftermath, inquiring with your employer regarding its Employee Assistance Program and a handful of organizations (e.g., Red Cross, NAMI Florida, United Way and SMRH) that can help you during this time. Additionally, if you are interested in volunteering, Volunteer Florida – Florida’s leading agency for volunteers and donations – has a few reminders for those who want to support communities impacted by the hurricane. Visit this link for information.

THEN and NOW
Remember the commercials that asked, “Got milk?” Well, HR Florida is asking “Got sixty?”

If you took the SHRM pathway in 2015 to obtain your new SHRM certification, your recertification date is in 2018. However, if you have your required 60 PCDs already, early recertification will put needed money into the coffers of both your chapter and state council.
SHRM will give $20 to the member's chapter and $10 to the member's state council for each member who recertifies in 2017. It's free money SHRM is giving to support your local and state SHRM!

This incentive program not only benefits local and state SHRM entities, but also helps you because your new certification date will still remain 2021, and if it turns out any of your submitted activities were not credited, you have all of 2018 to resubmit.

If you are eligible for early recertification, we ask that you do so. You are eligible to recertify early if you have acquired 60 PDCs and are at least one year into your recertification cycle. Monies attributable to at-large members’ early recertification benefit their state councils.

So who’s “Got sixty???” For more information, contact HR Florida Certification Chair Linda Willey at linda.willey@hrflorida.org

Certified Programs YOU Can Facilitate!
There is a series of free, competency-based, multi-media presentations available for use by chapters and state councils. Everything you need is included -- from the detailed facilitator's guide to an attendee evaluation. These programs are pre-approved for 1.5 PDCs, so access this phenomenal new resource today!
