Proud recipient of the 2016 Southern Region IPMA-HR Outstanding Chapter Award!
Welcome to the International Public Management Association for HR Texas Chapter (TX IPMA-HR). It is with great pleasure that I accept the opportunity to serve as the 2016-17 president of the newly created and extremely progressive IPMA-HR chapter. In its third year of existence, the TX IPMA-HR chapter has already accomplished much in its quest to promote excellence in human resources management. From hosting informative conferences that address relevant topics to offering training opportunities to obtain professional certifications, the TX IPMA-HR chapter continues to provide cutting edge training, development and networking opportunities for public sector human resources professionals in Texas.
The goal of TX IPMA-HR is to provide opportunities for all levels of public sector HR professionals that will further enhance their professional development and growth. Membership in the chapter provides benefits that include:
- Continuous professional development
- Discounted training and seminars
- Regular update on HR industry news and proposed legislative changes
- Access to a wide network of HR professionals in Texas
- Timely information about upcoming area HR training with partnering organizations
- Budget-friendly membership dues
If you have not already done so, please take the opportunity to join the TX IPMA-HR Chapter. I firmly believe that you will not find a better return for a small investment in your career.
We hope you will join us during the Chapter’s annual training conference scheduled for July 19-21 at the Lost Pines Hyatt Resort in Lost Pines, TX. We will have excellent speakers, great networking, and ample family time.
I and the chapter board members look forward to another great year and delivering value-added development programs and networking opportunities for our members. Should you have any questions, ideas, or wish to serve on a committee, our board members are available to assist you. We hope to see you at an upcoming chapter event.
