Nomintation for HR Person of the Year Award 2019


Congratulations to our 2018 HR Person of the Year!

Ed is recognized as one of Lancaster SHRM’s outstanding leaders. He has been involved in Chapter operations for many years. Ed served on the Finance committee, as BOD Treasurer, Chapter President and most recently on the Outreach committee.

One of the key influences Ed has had on the Chapter was during his term as president when he oversaw both the chapter name change to “Lancaster SHRM” and the conversion to a calendar fiscal year to better align with our program year. He has been active with PA SHRM Council. He has been a speaker at local, state and national conferences, including SHRM.

I believe this says it all…Ed truly embodies the spirit and ideal of the human resources profession.
