    President's Letter

    Dear Fellow HRMA of Central MA Members,

    On behalf of the HRMA of Central MA Board of Directors, "Thank you!" for your continued support and active participation over the last program year. I am looking forward to serving as President of HRMA of Central MA for the 2019-2020 program year. We look forward to seeing you again in September 2019 as we begin our 74th year of providing value to the local human resources community!

    As a reflection of the past year, members of our Board of Directors and committee members have been busy implementing our new website, collaborating with local colleges and growing our membership base. We delivered presentations on several key areas of Human Resource Management including Drugs in the Workplace, Understanding and Managing Bias, Ethics in the Workplace, an evening networking event in which we discussed Virtual Reality and HR; and ended our membership year with a half day program on Workplace Safety and Security, taught by Blue-U. A big shout out and round of applause to our committee members and Board members for another successful year!

    As we approach the 2019-2020 program year, I'm pleased to report that your HRMA membership will continue to include a complimentary membership in NEHRA (the Northeast Human Resources Association - the largest HR professional association in the Northeast with over 2,200 members), which includes full access to the NEHRA website, member pricing for all programs, and access to the Career Center and NEHRA Job Board!

    Based on ongoing positive feedback, we will continue utilizing the same location for our meetings, Worcester Technical High School, offering a mix of breakfast and lunch meetings.

    As always, our annual dues covers your membership in HRMA of Central MA, plus:

    We look forward to seeing you for the 2019-2020 Program Year!


    Jane Fontaine
    HRMA of Central MA
