Message from the President
linda pipitone
I am very excited to be leading HRMA St. Louis in 2018. Past President, John Marino, led some very great initiatives, and it is my hope to continue to build on those in 2018. Highlighting our year was HRMA St. Louis' selection as a SHRM Pinnacle Award finalist with our first submission of the MO HR Day of Service project. Without the hard work of many members of our chapter, we would not have been a contender! Click here to read more.
  
January 17th Committee Fair, Happy Hour & Dinner Meeting - Leading as a Human Resource Professional: Influencing Organizational Change
Keith Friede
It's the challenge of every serious HR professional - operating more strategically, to be more influential and get a "seat at the head table." But crafting a brilliant strategy is only a start, because the world is not likely to beat a path to your doorstep.
In this session, we'll go beyond the "what" to address what is, arguably, more important - the "how": establishing credibility as a business professional, developing your ability to influence, developing a dense web of trusting relationships inside and outside your organization, and communicating more effectively as a leader. You'll have an opportunity in the session to actively begin developing action plans for improving your business influence, expanding your network, and communicating - and to practice all three with new network acquaintances!
