Sierra Human Resources Association seeking board members

Special to the Sun

TAHOE/TRUCKEE and#8212; Sierra Human Resources Association is a community organization providing business owners, managers and human resource professionals the opportunity to network and discuss management practices and business issues that effect employees and livelihoods. This mountain community has a variety of businesses, many without the internal support structure of a human resources department or the ability to provide professional training opportunities. Whether your business is large, medium or small, your intention is to support, value and develop your people.

SHRA is seeking enthusiastic leaders with a variety of skill sets in the areas of membership development, public relations and marketing, program development, meeting coordination and administrative support. The time commitment is minimal compared to the positive impact you may have on individuals and community health.

SHRA presents an annual calendar of quarterly meetings, networking lunches and popular workshops (Social Media Smarts, The Art of Public Speaking) and legal updates (Trash Talk with Attorneys, Strictly Workers Comp) co-sponsored by the North Lake Tahoe Chamber of Commerce and the Truckee Donner Chamber of Commerce.

SHRA will host 400 international students from South America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand so they can learn about American cultural differences, the Tahoe-Truckee lifestyle and employment expectations in a service-based economy.

SHRA will host a lively annual employment law update Thursday, Jan. 20 at the Cedar House Sports Hotel in Truckee, 8:30 a.m.-noon with Julie A. Vogelzang, an employment law attorney and partner at Duane Morris, LLP in San Diego.

Sierra Human Resources Association is a proud affiliate of the Society for HR Management (SHRM). Please contact Laura Moriarty, at 530-573-0224 or regarding board member expectations. Also visit
