UNITY thRough community


Welcome! and thank you for visiting the SBHRA website.

As we enter into and embrace a new decade, we can reflect on what we bring from the last decade to continue to build on and successfully transition into what is starting off to be labeled as the “Roaring 20’s”.  No doubt there is much ahead for the profession of Human Resources!  As a valued SBHRA member, we will continue to assist you to be prepared for whatever comes our way this year!

SBHRA will continue to be a strong resource for our members and community in professional development, the latest legislative information, opportunities for continued networking, and ways to propel and advance our profession.  We do this with the programs and events we offer, the resources available on our website and others offered through our EBlasts, with other subject matter experts, significant business and educational partnerships, affiliation and partnerships with SHRM and CalSHRM and outreach to our HR community and extended community.  We also want our organizations to feel supported knowing that SBHRA offers exemplary programs, certification opportunities, and outreach to the community to sustain up-to-date knowledge in the latest human resources developments affecting labor laws, compensation, employee relations, safety, HR systems and any other areas that will impact our work lives.

Our SBHRA Board of Volunteers is committed to our members and community.  We invite you to attend our events and hope you will consider joining a committee and/or serving on our board.  If this is your year for unity in your community, please contact any board member or me directly for assistance.  We enjoy the opportunity for new ideas and to strengthen our commitment to our members. Please feel free to offer your expertise and feedback – this is your association and we want to hear from you.

SHRM will hold its annual convention this year in San Diego, an ideal time to attend one of the largest gatherings of HR professionals in one place!  If you have never attended a SHRM annual conference, I encourage you to do so.  If you have, I encourage you to once again attend and grow your professional portfolio or to stay up-to-date in your profession. There will be an opportunity to attend presentations by world renowned speakers and authors; visit with benefit, system; and support vendors for your training or strategic planning, culture, wellness or rewards programs.  Many from SBHRA and Santa Barbara will be making the short trip to San Diego for this huge HR event, and I again encourage you to do so as well.

SBHRA will continue to keep you up-to-date all new legislation, cutting edge technology and what is trending in HR.   We are looking forward to another dynamic year and hoping you are too!

Looking forward to seeing you at an upcoming event soon.

All my best to you,


Sharon Brown, SHRM-CP, PHR
President (Interim) 2019
