To All Our Members:

It is with deep sorrow I share with you the news that our Chapter Manager Professional, Kristy Cousins, passed away early this morning, ending her second battle against breast cancer.

Kristy has been a member of Salt Lake SHRM for years and was our CMP for the past 18 months, providing incredible value and energy to our chapter. Often times, she worked behind the scenes to ensure everything was running at maximum (and sometimes more than maximum!) capacity, committed to making every member, sponsor, speaker and volunteer feel valued and appreciated. We will miss having Kristy with us, though we are also grateful she is free from the pain she endured. 

The Board of Directors will engage a search to replace the CMP position after the Employment Law Seminar next Tuesday. Information about the role will be posted on our website next week.
