Super Special Spring Social Announcement & some other noteworthy save the dates!

Erin Henry, MSA, PHR
Servant Leader MVHRA 2012

I anticipate MVHRA’s 2013 to be a fun and exciting year!  I’m privileged to have the opportunity to announce a super special spring social outing!  Sponsored by Lee Hecht Harrison, MVHRA will be hosting a night at the Dayton Dragon’s ball park at Dayton’s own 5/3rd Field!  Mark your calendars and save the May 16th date as limited space is available.  Buy your ticket and up to one additional adult ticket for the special early bird price of $15 each.  Purchase online at this link. Only 50 tickets are available at this price and includes game ticket, souvenir Dragon’s hat, and food (unlimited popcorn, grilled chicken sandwiches, hamburgers, hot dogs, mac & cheese, potato salad, baked beans, watermelon, fresh seasonal crudités, cookies and non-alcoholic drinks). An additional 20 tickets will be available at $20 each once the first 50 tickets are gone, so hurry!  This is an opportunity to network with some of your colleagues and meet new ones in a fun setting!  I’m certain this event will be a home run!

Other dates to save:  Beginning in January, on a monthly basis (3rd Thursday of each month) MVHRA will be hosting a Wine Social at the Wine Loft at The Greene (5:30-8pm), with a $5.00 entry donation to the SHRM Foundation.  Not only will we be able to connect with one another but this is also a great way to support the SHRM Foundation.  MVHRA has been recognized nationally as a SHRM Foundation “Chapter Champion” in support of the continuous research and tools that the Foundation provides to HR practitioners globally.
