Christopher Kujawa    Deb Seidman 


We are honored and delighted to step into the co-presidents role for NYHRPS. We have both benefited tremendously from being a part of this awesome community, and are fortunate to be leading such a strong professional association and working with a talented and committed board. 

The pace of change is ever increasing; we are laser-focused on ensuring that this “gem” of a community adapts to evolving needs in fulfilling its mission to provide a collaborative forum for developing innovative, results-oriented experts who can lead strategic approaches to human capital. We will do this by working to delight our members through powerful educational sessions and networking opportunities.  

During the first quarter of 2019 alone, our programs featured renowned thought leaders, such as Josh Bersin, Sally Helgesen, and Adam Bryant. Our 2019 events represent the high-value experiences we strive to bring to our members. As always, they are topical, thought-provoking, and interactive.  We’ve included a longer, more in-depth offering for those of you who want to engage in a Design-Thinking experience and a purely social networking event to expand connections. We’ve also launched Peer Circles, intimate peer-learning groups that come together for more thorough discussions on key themes.

As you know, we are a volunteer-driven organization. We can speak from our personal experience as to how valuable it has been for us to engage more deeply with other members in this capacity, and we encourage you to do the same. There are many ways to volunteer so your involvement can both meet your interests and be manageable with other demands on your time and attention. Greeting attendees at our events, supporting our communications efforts, and increasing our outreach to potential members are just a few examples. If you are contemplating the possibility of joining our board one day, getting involved in one of our committees now is a great way to participate more meaningfully and contribute to our growth. Want to know more about volunteering? Reach out to Kay Henry and she’ll help you find the right opportunity. 

We would also like to recognize our sponsors who introduce us to new ideas and services in the marketplace, as well as help us keep the cost of membership low. This year, we are very pleased to showcase The Ayers Group as our Premier Sponsor and Epstein Becker Green as our Annual Sponsor. We encourage everyone to take time at each session to meet our sponsors. Contact Bob Nesbit with suggestions for a future sponsor.

If you, like us, value your NYHRPS experience, please help spread the word. Invite a guest to one of our programs, join our LinkedIn Group to share information and expand your network, and tweet and post about our events.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Christopher Kujawa and Deb Seidman
