Looking ahead to 2023, OCHRS will be offering eleven monthly chapter meetings with another holiday celebration event in December. There will be numerous business-after-hours events for members only and other after-hours events for everyone working or serving the HR profession. There will be a Masters Series events with more in- depth training plus another Non-Profit Leadership Service Academy to prepare our members to serve on non-profit boards across our city and help bring best HR practices to others.
Our efforts in 2022 included growing our OCHRS College Student members to over 40 from the University of Central Oklahoma student chapter that OCHRS helped sponsor over twenty years ago. Our Young Professional committee expanded its scope to be the Emerging Professionals and OCHRS created a new annual award to recognize the best emerging leader of the year.
We communicate with you via social media and our bimonthly newsletter so you will not miss out on any events or relevant HR news. We make frequent posts on social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter and have our own company page on LinkedIn. Please stay connected by following OCHRS on those platforms and also periodically visiting our website. Additionally, the Emerging Professionals group and the Diversity Council have a presence on social media.
