    Just a note that the Governor issued new recommendations for Kentucky last evening that limits in person meetings (of any size) for all red counties – the majority of counties around Fayette call into that category, and Fayette itself is within a half percentage point of becoming red.


    Please review Governor Beshear’s recommendations for red counties in Kentucky effective 10/26/20, which encourage all employers to allow employees to work remotely whenever possible.

    If you attended our July Chapter Meeting, you might remember that registrants were to receive a copy of the book The Virtual Manager by Kevin Sheridan. While these were sent out a few weeks ago, we believe there may have been issues with the post office. If you have not received your book yet, you may receive it over the next few days. 

    If you have any questions or find you did not receive your book and should have, please contact communications@bgshrm.org

    Thank you!
