On. Sept. 4, nine Eastern students were sworn into the Society for Human Resource Management, the world's largest association devoted to human resource management. The society has more than 250,000 members in 140 countries. A local professional affiliate, the Human Resource Leadership Association of Eastern Connecticut, which represents nearly100 companies in eastern Connecticut and Rhode Island, formally installed the Eastern student chapter as an affiliate of the society, and presented a certificate and banner to the chapter. The student chapter will organize guest speakers, workshops, and networking events to develop student skills and make connections with industry human resource leaders in the area. For more information on the chapter, its activities, or to propose a professional speaker, contact faculty adviser Niti Pandey, assistant professor of management, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
