    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!
