    How do we connect – How do we engage?

    Our thoughts and prayers continue to focus on the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey, the impact on Southeast Texas, and the lives of so many of our fellow Texans.  Though, as is so often the case, disasters can bring out the best in people as we rise to the occasion by helping others in need.

    Unfortunately, Texans have earned a reputation for often being too loud, too proud, too sure of ourselves and our superiority over citizens of the other 49 states.  But as the events of the last 10 days have unfolded, we’ve heard stories, seen photos, and watched videos of selflessness and random acts of kindness performed by Texans by birth and those who got here as soon as they could.

    I saw a bumper sticker this morning that read: “Being Nice to People is a Really Good Idea”.  The simplicity of the statement resonated with me against the backdrop of displacement and distress felt by our neighbors to the south.

    Here’s hoping that we can keep the spirit of connection, engagement, service, and collaboration going long after people are safely returned to their homes and those they hold most dear.

    Do you feel time speeding up as the years fly by?  While certain that a diabolical master of the universe was stealing days from my calendar, I stumbled upon an explanation that the reason we feel that the years go by faster is that, as we age, the 12 months of a year make up a smaller and smaller percentage of our life.  Remember when you were 5 years old and felt that you had to wait FOREVER for your 6th birthday?  At 5, 12 months represents 1/5 of our total life time.  However, at 30, it’s 1/30th, at 40, it’s 1/40th, … so you see where this is going.

    As the AHRMA year flies by and we realize that we’re over half-way through 2017, we pause to celebrate:

    Our Monthly meeting model changes:

    • An Employment Law Hot Topics session at each meeting
    • 3 Breakfast Meeting

    • Thursday Networking Night with the opportunity to mix & mingle with ATX HR professionals
    • An invitation-only Executive Track on Friday morning

    Recognition of an AHRMA Volunteer of the Month-our Volunteers are the best of the best!
    The launch of a new Chapter Website
    Looking forward to sharing the rest of an exciting 2017!
