HRIM Foundation to Host Party for a Purpose Fundraiser at IHRIM 2014 Conference in Anaheim, CA

The Human Resource Information Management (HRIM) Foundation in conjunction with the Association for Human Resource Information Management (IHRIM), will be hosting their ‘Party for a Purpose: Party under the Palms’ fundraiser at IHRIM’s 2014 HRMS Strategies Conference and Technology Exposition (IHRIM 2014). Now in its 6th year, the HRIM Foundation’s event, Party for a Purpose, was established to raise funds to support research and educational programs that advance the HRIS profession.

“Come enjoy a relaxing evening with other conference attendees and the mild Southern California evening,” said Kevin Carlson, IHRIM Board Chairman. “Since the event will be a cocktail party under the palm trees on the Platinum Patio at the Anaheim Marriott, it provides for an ideal setting to network, mingle, make new professional connections and reconnect with colleagues.”

This year’s Party for a Purpose, to be held Monday, June 2, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., will have a jazz trio providing background music, a specially sponsored beverage and a wide variety of hors d’oeuvres. Tickets are $100 and a portion of the ticket cost is U.S. tax deductible. More information for the event can be found at

“As a resident of southern California, I am looking forward to ‘Party Under the Palms,'” said John A. Hinojos, HRIM Foundation President. “Being close to the Disneyland Resort, it is a perfect area to discuss the dreams and future plans of the HRIM Foundation as we begin to roll out new volunteer opportunities and a capital campaign to help fund IHRIM’s educational offerings.”
