AGM and New Board Members - CPHR NL

Last week the 2017 CPHR NL AGM was held at the Comfort Inn, Airport. In that meeting, the 2017 CPHR-NL budget was presented to the membership and approved. In addition, the three motions put forth related to the official name change and by-laws were approved. I am happy to announce that we are now legally changing our name to the Chartered Professionals in Human Resources Newfoundland and Labrador (CPHR NL). For further details on the AGM please see the attached 2017 AGM Report.

Elections were also held for six board positions. I would like to welcome Angela Henderson, Kimberly Spencer and Heather Conway to the board and welcome back to Leroy Murphy, Yvonne Knight and Jennifer Penny. We are very much looking forward to working with you in the coming years. I would also like to acknowledge the outgoing Board members, Roshni Antony, Paula Dube and Jan Dicks, for their contributions and support over the past years.

The new Board of Directors of CPHR NL includes:

Neil Coombs – President
Leroy Murphy – Vice-President
Yvonne Knight – Secretary
Kimberly Spencer – Treasurer
Tami MacDonald – Director of Certification and Education
Rebecca Cook – Director of Communications
Heather Conway – Director of Professional Development

Thank you to all who attended the AGM and to the members who couldn’t be there. I hope to see many of you at our upcoming events and I encourage you to get involved with the association in any capacity you can. Together we can work to strengthen the HR profession in Newfoundland and Labrador. Have a safe and happy summer.
