West Federation

Update from the West Federation

This year, West Federation CHRIE is off to a great start with a nice turnout for our Federation meeting at the ICHRIE conference in San Diego last summer. It is with sincere appreciation that I thank Jean Hertzman who did an outstanding job leading the West Federation over this past year. Without a doubt, she left big shoes to fill, and we look forward to her words of wisdom and guidance as the current West Federation leadership team moves forward. We are very pleased that we have a full board of officers and directors again this year. 

Mark your calendars! The West Federation conference is coming to San Francisco, February 6 and 7, 2015. With University of San Francisco and San Francisco State University working together to organize it, it should be fantastic. The call for papers will be distributed soon and we encourage any and all ICHRIE members who are interested to submit papers and plan on attending. Think about it, how often do you just “have to go” to San Francisco for the purpose of advancing your career and networking with colleagues. I look forward to seeing you there.

It’s an honor to serve as president of West Federation CHRIE this year. Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions or ideas for the West Federation.
