Pinnacle Award Project – T.A.R.G.E.T. Janette L’Heureux
Tutoring and Removing Gaps in Education for Tomorrow: HRMA fundraising initiative. This initiative is to fund the tutorial education of our community’s homeless children and provide them with an opportunity to pass the FCAT. Janette handed out a brochure she drafted to be used for this fundraising initiative. The cost of production of this brochure will be donated/underwritten by Leading Edge. The Lee County Schools representative, Mattie, will be submitting our proposal to the school board for approval. Once approved, we can begin the fundraising and put it on our website. We will need to begin sending funds raised to the school system’s FCAT tutoring coordinator by August. Hopefully we can launch the T.A.R.G.E.T. initiative at next month’s luncheon meeting with a power point presentation. Discussion held regarding trying to get local businesses to donate as well. Donors will be recognized on our website and with a thank you letter. Beth Barger will advertise the initiative at the Horizon Council and Molly Grubbs will see if ASTD would like to take part with us.
Day on the Hill Report Suzanne Boy
Suzanne will put together a summary of this event for publication on the Chapter website. She reported that it was very fascinating. The legislature is opposing 3 key legislative initiatives dealing with: background checks, mandatory E-Verify, and adding “unemployed” as a protected class for discrimination. Highlights in the FY 2013 budget include: misclassification of employees, Wage & Hour enforcement of FLSA ($6 million), and $5 million to promote states to require employers provide paid (sick) leave.

Karen Jaye is working on this project.
Treasurer, Sandy Vokoun, is working on getting the financial records to Sandie Peterson for the accountant(s) to file our taxes.
Tri-County Conference (5/18/12 at Crowne Plaza) Janette L’Heureux
Need More Sponsors!
Registration is now open and on the website. Registration and payment* can be done on line, plus the registration form can be printed out. *HRMA has set up a separate Pay Pal account just for this event so these funds are not co-mingled with the Chapter’s funds.
HR FL State Conference Sandie Peterson
HRMA purchased and sold 10 bulk registration tickets. The goal this year is to have 33 HRMA member paid attendees at the conference (excluding those HRMA officers that HR FL pays the cost for). Last year the goal was 31. To date, 12 HRMA members have registered. It was suggested that board members who attended last year’s state conference for the first time speak about the value of attending at the monthly luncheon meetings. Marianne Davis volunteered to speak at this month’s meeting and Victoria Ramina will speak at the April meeting.
Volunteer Update Sandy Iding
Needs assistance from the board on elaboration of areas on the volunteering list generated so she can match volunteers to committees. Sandy has the following lined up:
Sandy will refer the volunteers to the appropriate committee chairperson.
Evaluate the D&O Insurance Anna Evans/Janette L’Heureux
Janet Moore at Lykes Insurance has handled this annual evaluation at no cost and Anna confirmed that she will do so again this year.
March Membership Meeting – Networking (KJ ideas)
This month’s President’s letter is about networking. Question: can we do something to promote networking at the monthly meetings? Suggestion adopted: Have attendees put their business card in a basket and when they leave at the end of the meeting everyone picks a card. They will then contact that person before the next meeting and share with each other. This will be announced at the March meeting.
