Welcome to the Florida Keys Chapter, an affiliate of the Society for Human Resource Management.
The past several years have been exciting and challenging in the discipline of Human Resources. The Florida Keys Chapter is Monroe County’s “go-to” source when it comes to keeping abreast of current issues and developments in the field of Human Resources. Our Chapter’s focus is to increase awareness in all aspects of the constantly changing field of Human Resources through networking, educational programs and community outreach.
Our organization was created in 1986 by a group of local Human Resource Professionals interested in forming an alliance of individuals to specifically address HR policy. In 2003, we became affiliated with the Society for Human Resource Management. With the dedication and leadership of Teresa Aguiar, Past President, we elevated our Chapter from SHRM Excel Silver to SHRM Excel Gold status in 2014 and in 2015 we achieved SHRM Excel Platinum status. Our meetings are normally held during lunch on the second Wednesday of the month, most of which are pre-certified through HRCI and SHRM for recertification credits. Chapter membership covers contributions to our Chapter’s Scholarship and Excellence in Service Awards, contributions to SHRM Foundation, Chapter meals and celebration activities.
I would like to express my appreciation to Julie Panrock, our Immediate Past President, for the guidance and commitment to our Chapter and to all of our volunteers for their time and service as well as our dedicated sponsors. I am proud to be chosen as Chapter President this term and will work with the Board and Chair Officers to advance our Chapter and the needs of our membership.
