Join us for our celebratory, year-end Chapter Meeting! SHRM-Atlanta has two marquee all-member Chapter meetings each year, one in June and one in December.

On May 29, 2003, Mike Lee, a professional bull rider, endured a brain injury after smashing skulls with a bull. After surgery and four months of recovery, he returned to the sport and went on to rank among the world's best. Bull riding is called the most dangerous 8 seconds in sports. So why is there no shortage of bull riders willing to risk it all for an 8-second ride? They know their purpose and have found their life’s calling! No matter what you think, they are meant to ride bulls. What are you willing to do that may mean risking it all? Every day many people walk into an office they hate to work with people they only tolerate to do work they are not passionate about. That is an exhausting existence. As we approach the end of the year it is time to make a plan to do different and live more fulfilled. As HR professionals we help people find their “calling” every day. It is now our time to be the example: we must first live and do our passion. As we reach the end of the year it is time to assess the current year and plan for the next. Don’t spend any more time not riding your bull.

Help us celebrate the year's accomplishments as we look towards 2019. You don't want to miss this year-end celebration!
