President's Message

Dear AACA members,

I am excited to serve as your president for 2016.  I am calling this 'The Year of the Volunteer' and my goal is to get as many of you as possible involved in some way with the chapter.  We will soon be posting a list of volunteer opportunities.  Each opportunity will include a brief description of the responsibility and time commitment.  I hope that each of you will find an opportunity that meets your interests and time availability.  The chapter will be stronger when we get more members actively participating and contributing to our future.

Another goal for 2016 is to raise the visibility of AACA to the HR community.  We are looking at a number of marketing tactics to accomplish this.  One of the big mediums we want to use is social media.  We already have a LinkedIn Group for the chapter and we are setting up Twitter account.  We will be opening the LinkedIn Group to anyone, not just AACA members.  We encourage you to invite your HR network connections to join this group and use it to start discussions or ask questions of your peers.  From time to time we will be sending out a tweet to all members and ask you to re-tweet these.  We are also looking to partner with other HR organizations and vendors to expand our reach and bring our members greater access to programs.

Each year we strive to improve the level of service we provide to our members and this year is no exception.  We will be experimenting with meeting locations, day of the week and time, to try to accommodate more of our membership.  In addition to our regular bi-monthly meetings we will be testing the viability of a luncheon social similar to our 'Happy Hour' socials on the off months to help our members network and get to know each other. 

Finally, our emphasis on education will remain a high priority.  We will continue to bring a variety of topical programs in our bi-monthly meetings.  Planning for the programs for our annual forum is already underway and our aim is to have a dynamic keynote speaker that will be a draw not only for our members but also for others outside our organization.  In addition, our partnership with World at Work is strong and we have four World at Work classes schedule in Atlanta for this year.  Remember you get a 10% discount for these classes as an AACA member.  To receive the discount for 2016 World at Work events you must be a paid member of AACA (you must update your full profile on to include your mailing address) and use the discount code LNPROMO2016 when checking out of the World at Work online store.

I am looking forward to meeting and working with as many of you as possible throughout the year.  Thank you in advance for your support and participation.
