    Board Updates

    NASHRM Board of Directors
    The Northern Alaska SHRM chapter Board of Directors met in early February for 2023 strategic planning. The meeting also introduced new board members to the team;  Gabrielle Baxter - Secretary, Melisa Stuvek - Membership, and Gina Benavides - Professional Development. This was a great event which provided team building and a shared trajectory in the leadership of the NASHRM chapter. 

    Platinum Exel Award Winner
    ​SHRM recently awarded Northern Alaska SHRM Chapter its prestigious Platinum Excel Award for the chapter's accomplishments in 2021. The Excel award is given to the chapters to recognize major accomplishments, strategic activities, and tactical initiatives that elevate the profession of human resources.

    “SHRM’s impact on the world of work is due to the dedication and efforts of our chapters and state councils like Northern Alaska SHRM Chapter. “The Platinum Excel Award is not only a celebration of the great work done by NASHRM —it’s also recognition of their focus and determination to cause the effect to make great workplaces”, said Johnny C. Taylor, Jr., SHRM-SCP, president, and chief executive officer of SHRM.  “Their HR leadership is exemplary.”

    The Excel Award can be earned at four levels: bronze, silver, gold and platinum. Each level has a prescribed set of requirements and accomplishments that must be met. NASHRM will receive recognition in SHRM publications and at conferences, a logo to display on its website, and information to share with its members about the significance of this award.
