association news HRIA President’s Message By Claudia Verburgh, CHRP, CMC New Year, New Focus It’s hard to believe another year has almost come and gone. Over the past several months, there have been many initiatives and events keeping your Board of Directors extremely busy. The HRIA wrapped up a successful Annual General Meeting and 25th Anniversary Celebration in October 2009. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who helped make this milestone a memorable one. The dedication and enthusiasm of our volunteers and staff contributes to the success of many HRIA initiatives. Great work is being done and we plan to build on that momentum heading into the New Year. The 2009/2010 Board of Directors will be transitioning into their new roles and plan to work hard to achieve the progressive goals of the Association: • Continue to enhance the professionalism of the Human Resources practice through certifying and developing members through professional partnerships • Working to implement Collaboration in all regions • Maintain a strong voice at the national table • Continue to grow and attract new members while retaining existing members • Research and implement new programs and services to better serve members This Association has experienced a wonderful year and we are well positioned for the year ahead. To help you gear up for 2010, the editorial team is bringing you a topic that comes up frequently in discussions of HR trends, especially trends in technology. The theme of this issue of Network magazine is Privacy. Concerns may vary from HR’s need to protect its data to questions related to the monitoring of employees’ electronic communications. I hope you enjoy this Winter issue and as always, I welcome your ideas, comments or questions to ■ NETWORK Winter 2009
