President's Message

I am honored and privileged to serve as your President for our 2017-2018 fiscal year. Your leadership team and committee members are comprised of dedicated volunteers who, like me, are passionate about CBN and the value we strive to provide to our membership.

To get the most out of your membership with CBN, I would encourage you to:

  •  Attend our bi-monthly programs. We will continue to bring a variety of relevant, current and topical programs with dynamic speakers.
  • Register for and attend our locally-hosted WorldatWork courses. Our emphasis on professional development remains a high priority. If cost is a concern, apply for one of our Scholarships.
  • Attend our networking socials. Network with your peers in a more casual atmosphere. You'll have fun as well!
  • Engage with your peers via our LinkedIn group and/or on the WorldatWork community. Ask questions - provide advice – share and learn from others.
  • Get involved and volunteer! I can't emphasize the value of volunteering – expanded networking and relationship building, leadership development and more – the many benefits more than outweigh the minimal time commitment.

CBN is pleased to announce an additional member scholarship which will cover the cost of our upcoming WorldatWork   "C2 - Job Analysis, Documentation and Evaluation" course hosted by CBN right here in St. Louis.  The course dates are May 9 - 10, 2018.  Please visit our PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT page for more information if you are interested in requesting this scholarship.  You can also register for this course on this page.

Also, our Steering Committee unanimously voted to offer another $2,000 scholarship to a Webster University graduate student majoring in Human Resources Management. This is in alignment with our valued partnership with Webster University.  Webster hosts our WorldatWork course offerings as well as most of our bi-monthly programs.  Our 2017 scholarship recipient also receives a free membership with CBN and has attended our events.  CBN is delighted to give back to our community and help grow the HR/Total Rewards profession.

Finally (for now), we will be offering our 2018-2019 slate of Steering Committee members for a vote of the membership at our May 2018 program.  If you are interested in serving, either on the Steering Committee or as a Committee member, please go to our CBN COMMITTEES AND HOW TO VOLUNTEER page and let us know how you'd like to help and get involved.  We are always looking for volunteers.  As the adage goes, "many hands makes lighter work."

Please continue check back often. I commit to keeping you updated on new developments on a regular basis.  This is your association. I'd love to hear from you. Drop me a line and let us know how we can enhance the value of your membership with CBN!

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

All the best,

President - Compensation & Benefits Network of Greater St. Louis
