Let’s "Fall” into Some Fun!


The weather turns cooler, the pumpkin patches emerge, and we all get in the mood for some tricks and treats!  Although we’re limited on the tricks, we definitely have some treats lined up for the month!


As we head into Fall, we say good-bye to Summer, and hello to great opportunities that await us here at NCHR-SD!

As we wrap up our Summer, we have to stop and think…where in the heck did it go??  For us here at NCHR-SD, it’s our time to rally the forces for attacking 2016!  We are looking for volunteers to join us, either on our board or on committees.


I am pleased to announce that we have two new board members who have recently joined us.  Steve Rosenberg has joined our board as our VP of Membership Development.  Steve’s role will include fostering new members and building our organization to better serve the HR community.  Steve currently works for Nyhart Epler, who produces our annual salary survey in which NCHR-SD is a proud sponsor.


Parag Mody, who has taken on the role of Treasurer, also joins our board.  Parag is currently the VP of Finance and HR at Cali Bamboo, as well as a member of our Leadership Council.  Parag brings some wonderful financial experience to our board, which will help us grow and flourish financially.


In addition to our two new board members, we are looking for other volunteers who would be interested in helping NCHR-SD expand and develop as the premier HR organization for North County.  We are looking for volunteers to take on board roles for the 2016 year, as well as various committee opportunities throughout the year.


If you are interested in being an integral part of our dynamic organization, please contact any board member, or send your interest to


Come join the fun!
