Marketing Committee

The Marketing Committee is chaired by Tammy LaPoint-O'Brien. The Marketing Committee has two sub-committee areas: Website and Technology. The Website has several areas that we know we could improve on and with the help of our MT|SHRM Administrator, Shannan Duggin we believe that the Website Sub-Committee could enhance the website resources for all of our members. If you are hiding your IT skills under your HR hat then we encourage you to take off your hat, and let your “geeky-hair” down by joining our sub-committee.

The second sub-committee is Technology. Social Media has exploded into our personal lives and is melting over into our professional lives every day. LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook are tools that are proactively being used for a myriad of reasons in the business world from job searches to networking, to planning company picnics to determining customer wants and needs. As of January 2010, MT|SHRM has a presence on all of these networking tools, and we would welcome having more volunteers who have a passion for social media education, development, and participation.

Event Promotion Policy

MT|SHRM will only promote official chapter events, and occasionally, on a case by case basis, events for other SHRM chapters, Student SHRM chapters, Tennessee SHRM Council, national SHRM, and events sponsored by other non-profit organizations that we believe will be of interest to a majority of our members, such as ASTD, MTEBC, NATRA, TANS, and other professional organizations. MT|SHRM will not promote events that are sponsored or provided by for-profit businesses, and HRCI credit being offered has no influence on programs that we promote through our communication channels.
