Nisha Jafari, PHR     




HRAM is fortunate to have Nisha not only as a member but as a leader in our profession and the HRAM family.  

After moving from California to Omaha in 2015, Jafari joined HRAM and its national organization, SHRM. She began volunteering on the membership committee for the state council, HR Nebraska, where she has focused on helping to drive overall membership for all Nebraska SHRM chapters.  

“Nisha has done a fabulous job as the membership director for HR Nebraska. She spearheaded several initiatives associated with the HR Nebraska State Conference last August, which resulted in new members in nearly every chapter, including HRAM,” said Kelli Lieurance, director of HR Nebraska. 

"Jafari’s willingness to try a new approach and her leadership in proposing and implementing new membership drive initiatives were key to her success," according to Mike Bojanski, HR Nebraska district director and HRAM past president. 

“The importance of volunteers to our association cannot be overestimated,” said Carrie Svendsen, HRAM board president, “and Nisha’s efforts deserve the heartiest congratulations.”
