Hello! I am Natasha Slaughter, 2019 President of SHRM Jacksonville. It is a privilege and an honor to be voted as the leader of this great professional association.
For over 60 years, SHRM Jacksonville has had a history of serving the Human Resources profession by offering professional development and networking opportunities, volunteerism and advocacy efforts at the state and federal level.
Whether you are new to HR, an Emerging Professional or a seasoned HR Leader, it is an exciting time to be a member of both the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) and the local chapter, SHRM Jacksonville. Being a member of both allows you to have exposure to national and local resources and to network with other HR professionals. Emerging Professionals have an opportunity to learn from HR leaders and gain best practices in managing an HR career. Seasoned and Senior HR Leaders can continue to stay on the cutting edge of HR practices while providing guidance and mentorship to the future of HR. All members have the opportunity to give back to the local community through volunteerism and chapter-led initiatives that focus on the everyday challenges of HR professionals.
SHRM Jacksonville also has a successful track record of being a resource to the First Coast workforce and business community by offering HR educational resources and workshops to non-HR practitioners, HR advocacy at the state and federal level and by being the voice of HR in local and state media channels.
