2015 LASHRM Focus

    Quarterly Blog by Miranda Eisermann, LASHRM Past President

    It’s hard to believe it is 2015 already. Every year the LASHRM chapter starts the year off in Strategic Planning session we usually focus on direct actions we can achieve in 2015. This year we are working on more long term strategies to improve LASHRM and continue our growth and initiatives in years to come. This can be difficult for chapters as we all have full time careers as well.

    LASHRM is focusing on these areas in 2015

     

    • Offering updated/enhanced professional development programming.
    • Expanding our overarching membership education – more to come on benefits of LASHRM and how you can capitalize your membership perks!
    • Adding more rewards and recognition for your LASHRM involvement.
    • Gaining better feedback from you!  What you like, don’t like, participation in community events.  We want to know!!
    • Tying your interests (based on the feedback gained) to what personally motivates you to get more involved.  What you value most!
    • Increasing LASHRM’s brand awareness, both internally to members as well as to the community.  Let’s get excited about how LASHRM can help you and others in our community!

     

    Questions to start thinking more strategically:

    • What is the one thing your chapter or organization was worst at this year? What is the one thing you can do to improve it?

    • What is the one thing your chapter or organization did best this year? What do you need to do to continue that success?

    • Which individual was most responsible for standing in the way of your chapter or organization's success this year? What are you going to do to improve or correct this issue?

    • Which committee was most responsible for standing in the way of your chapter’s success this year? What are you going to do to correct this?

    • Which individual was most responsible for your chapter’s success this year? What are you going to do to keep that person on the board, a part of the chapter? Can they aid in educating others?

    • Which committee was most responsible for your chapter’s success this year? What are you going to do to keep that momentum going? Could they coach other committees?

    • What is the single metric that was not effective? What will you do to enhance metrics and measurements this year?

    • What is the single metric you will measure the success of new initiatives?  How will you know they were successful or not successful?

     

     

    I am very excited for 2015! If you’re interested in getting involved contact anyone on the board or myself.
