Welcome Letter

Welcome to SHRM-LI

Christel Colon - President SHRM-li

As we embark on another holiday season, I am reflecting on the State of HR in the US today and all I can say is WOW.

So much has transpired since I started my SHRM-LI Presidency four years ago and I could not be more proud of SHRM-LI’s support of the HR community through it all.

Because of the commitment, passion, and innovation of our Volunteer Chapter Leaders SHRM-LI continues to provide timely and comprehensive programming and resources to arm and empower HR professionals and those with workforce oversight throughout Long Island. THANK YOU!!!!

I am also grateful for the partnership, support, and engagement of our esteemed Sponsors. It is through these partnerships that our Members are afforded a vast array of opportunities to learn, network, and grow, both personally and professionally.

As I look to the future, I am excited that a new slate of leaders will carry on the spirit and love of HR that has allowed SHRM-LI to be the Voice of HR on Long Island. I am comforted by the promise of their passion, care, and concern for SHRM-LI Members and their mission to advance the HR Profession as well as the HR Professional. The only constant is change and for SHRM-LI all change results in progress shared with our Members.

It has been an honor and privilege to have served as SHRM-LI President for the last four years. I am grateful for the experience and will continue to champion my beloved profession and this amazing organization.

I wish you all a Holiday Season filled with Joy, Peace, Love, Family, Friends – and a little HR – and may the New Year bring each and every one of you opportunity and fulfillment.

Christel Colón, SHRM-SCP, SPHR
President, SHRM-Long Island
