President's Message
Share |

It is my honor to serve as the President of this great organization. For over 35 years, our Chapter has been the leading Human Resources expert and partner at the local, state, and national level. Our membership is made up of over 250 dedicated HR professionals, practitioners, and business owners from multiple industries.

Joining Big Bend SHRM is more than a membership, it’s a partnership. Our mission as an organization is to serve our members and the Big Bend workforce by elevating HR practices through education, collaboration, and advocacy. We continue to filter our initiatives with the goal to: GROW OUR MEMBERSHIP, SERVE OUR MEMBERS and LEAD IN THE COMMUNITY.

Each year, Big Bend SHRM seeks to elevate the Human Resources profession and create better workplaces by providing our members and community with professional development opportunities and resources, and this year is no different. In 2019, we will focus on providing our current and future members with quality programming such as our monthly Chapter meetings, Master Series, annual HR Tallahassee Conference, SHRM certification study group, networking opportunities, and more.

This is a great time to be in the field of HR! I look forward to meeting you at one of our meetings. Please feel free to contact me at if you have any suggestions or if I can answer any questions.


My best,

Monique Akanbi, SHRM-CP, PHR
