    Traditional meetings cost too much. As organizations trim staff and fewer people are being asked to accomplish more work, face-to-face meetings are becoming a luxury.

    Hence, the virtual meeting. Identify, understand and overcome the greatest obstacle to successful virtual communication!

    People from around the globe or down the hall can participate with minimal interruption. The problem is that many people don’t understand the etiquette of virtual meetings.

    As HR professionals, we help our organizations create and maintain productive and effective work environments. We are in an ideal position to understand and implement strategies that enhance communications between individuals and teams, wherever they may be.

    Virtually Speaking provides you with new ways to communicate and to effectively accomplish your objectives. This presentation will help your staff understand the impact of their actions in the virtual setting, and inspire the meeting leader to take the necessary steps that will ensure that even when meeting virtually, you’re still getting your message across.

    Our Speaker:

    Ronald M. Katz, SPHR is the president of Penguin Human Resource Consulting, LLC. His inspirational style has proven effective with seasoned professionals as well as newcomers to the field. By blending humor with real workplace stories he helps participants see the value in working with people instead of simply managing them.

    Ron has delivered training to HR staff and line managers in a wide variety of industries. Ron is the author of “Someone’s Gonna Get Hired...It Might As Well Be You!” and numerous articles that have appeared in national HR Journals. He’s an adjunct instructor at Cornell University School of ILR.

    In Transition Group:

    Our in-transition group, open to all, meets at 4:30. The group provides professionals in transition with networking opportunities and support as they seek employment opportunities within their profession.  This month, the In-transition group is fortunate to have Ron Katz as a guest facilitator at HRMA's In Transition meeting. Mr. Katz provides coaching to people in career transitions and has authored a book entitled "Someone's Gonna Get Hired".

    Our Sponsor:

    As an international chemical group, SOLVAY assists industries in finding and implementing ever more responsible and value-creating solutions. The Group is firmly committed to sustainable development and focused on innovation and operational excellence.

    Food Drive:

    In the spirit of giving, HRMA will again this year lend a helping hand to HomeFront by hosting a food drive for the holidays. HomeFront, as you know, is a non-profit organization dedicated to ending homelessness in Mercer County. Knowing that far too many families struggle to make ends meet, one of their endeavors is to provide the means for 1,000 needy families to enjoy a home cooked meal on Thanksgiving, and HRMA is pleased to support that goal. We ask that you bring canned goods or small toiletries and personal care items to the November 11 dinner meeting. There will be a recepticle available to collect your donations at the beginning of the meeting.
