    Why Not Make the Most Out of Networking?

    It’s no secret that people are creatures of habit, and we’re naturally more comfortable sitting near people we know when attending social meetings and events.  At the next SHRMA meeting you attend, why not try sitting at a table where you know no-one. This will give you the opportunity to meet someone new and maybe one of our new members. And if you’re a long time SHRMA member, you might even share the benefits of affiliation with our Chapter with a new SHRMA member.  Our local chapter has a wide variety of members in different organizations. We should all try and tap into these great local resources.  You never know, you may meet a life-long friend!
