Happy New Year!



Dear PHRMA Members -

It is an honor to serve as your new PHRMA President and I am excited for 2018!!  I want to thank Tim Rasch for his dedicated service, leadership and continued commitment to help grow PHRMA.  This past year has flown by so quickly and I have enjoyed working together with Tim, Nikki and your outstanding board, for a year full of exceptional accomplishments.  In preparation for the 2018 board transition meeting, I had a chance to reflect on PHRMA's legacy and how important PHRMA continues to be to its members since 1947 and here are just a few highlights - 1100 members currently, over 23 PDC provided for 2017, over 40 events this year, 32 PHRMA certification class attendees passed SHRM certification & about $20,000 in sponsorship.  I was very encouraged by the passion at our board transition meeting and it is a true reflection of PHRM's leadership to ensure we continue to grow and be a vibrant association for our members & business communities.  Thank you all for your professionalism, continued support and volunteerism to PHRMA.  See you soon and CHEERS to 2018!!

Mark Robbins
2018 PHRMA President




2017 was another amazing year for PHRMA and I, like Mark am looking forward to another great year in 2018! Your board has been working hard to ensure your membership provides you with the benefits you need and want, so watch throughout the year as new and revised programs are offered. The first of which is our first of quarterly Networking events! Join us on January 31st at Lucky Lab for a sole networking event. Are you nervous about networking or want to know how to do it better? This is the event for you! Alice Tang will be providing you with some insight on how to do it well and WHY it’s so important for your career. Networking is the #1 reason HR professionals join PHRMA. So let’s get it started!

I would also like to send out some quick recognition to all of our volunteers who continue to come back year after year to stay involved with this amazing organization that you are a part of as well! We are a volunteer-led organization and without amazing people giving up some of their free time then we would not exist! If you or someone you know wants to get involved, I would love to talk to you!

Cheers (again) to 2018!

Nikki Schutte, SHRM-CP, PHR
Chapter Director – PHRMA

Go, PHRMA! It has been amazing to watch this organization take on a new and exciting life. A few years ago the concern was that it was becoming stale and irrelevant. But look at us now! I have been hearing such great things out in the community about Think Tanks and the Emerging Professionals program, and bringing in Alice Tang (the absolute queen of networking) is a wonderful opportunity to learn to grow your network. Proud to be a member and looking forward to watching PHRMA grow!
