It's finally fall and getting cooler, this is my favorite time of the year. We have many
things going on in our chapter and I hope you are seeking ways to be involved.

Currently, we are just starting our job mentoring program and the first meeting will be
October 17. We are very excited to be starting something new with Smoky Hill
Learning Education Center.

I think that we have excellent speakers lined up to finish off our year and hope that
you will mark your calendars to attend our meetings. Being at our chapter meetings
is a great way to network and build relationships with others in the HR field.

I want to personally encourage you to attend our HR Banquet on November 2. This
will be a nice evening of good food and a great speaker. I hope that all who attend
will receive encouragement that the HR field is a wonderful career to work and grow
in! HR people make a difference in people's lives and I think it's always nice to be
reminded of that.
