Spring has finally arrived, and NYHRPS is undergoing a renewal of our own! We have had the opportunity to offer programs at two new venues: Newman Library at Baruch College and Scandinavia House. We hope you have had a chance to join us at one or both—if so, let us know what you think!
We are also beginning the process of Board renewal—that is, considering potential new members for 2018. We anticipate 2-3 openings; in particular, the Treasurer position. If you would like more information about the requirements, propose yourself, or a colleague for consideration, please contact Kay Henry firstname.lastname@example.org by June 2, 2017.
We were delighted that a recent NYHRPS Forum on Design Thinking reflected the theme of the HRPS Annual Conference (held in April). The Forum was so well received that we are looking at presenting a second session on the topic, as a broader program.
The conference also reflected discussion and debate on topics that are of interest to many of us—flexibility of remote workers vs. the information and innovation benefits of proximity to colleagues, how much will the “digital age” affect the work that is being done in our organizations—and, by HR! Share your thoughts on our LinkedIn page: NYHRPS LinkedIn —and see what others are saying.
Hope to see you in May or June, and have a wonderful summer!
Valeria Schiemann and Julie Staudenmier
