In Memoriam

Alison Fox, ESQ, passed away on September 13, 2017, after a courageous battle with cancer.

Alison was a Partner with Faegre Baker Daniels in the South Bend office. More than that, she was an outstanding wife, mother, colleague and friend.  Alison was a long-time member of Michiana SHRM and devoted Board member since 2009, serving alternately as Legislative Director, Diversity Director, and Workforce Readiness Director.

Those who were fortunate to know Alison knew that she was an amazing woman! She was always willing to help, never thinking of the benefit for her. She didn't hesitate to volunteer and take on additional roles when it came to the SHRM board, all while juggling her personal and professional life. Never was there a time that Alison did not just jump in and help out in any capacity needed.  She was always gracious to give of her time to coordinate meetings and events for the committees she chaired, a task that could easily have been delegated.  Even if she was extremely busy, Alison always made you feel like you were the most important person at that time.  She always had a calm demeanor and constant smile. 

Alison brought true joy to our chapter with her high energy, selflessness and overall passion to serve the Michiana community. She would not hesitate to reach out and provide support to any one of our members when called upon, because she just wanted to. That was an example of Alison's selflessness and willingness to guide anyone through tough legal challenges.

Alison will be greatly missed, but her legacy will carry on through all the wonderful contributions she has made to her employer, our Chapter, and the Community.

Alison leaves behind her husband, Craig, and three beautiful daughters, Izzy (15), Willow (14), and Ebba (11).  Many of Alison's friends have asked how they can best honor Alison's memory. As a tribute to her, one of our friends (and Alison's colleague at Faegre Baker Daniels) has established the Alison Gibbs Fox Children’s Education Trust. To make donating easy, she set up this Go Fund Me page. All donations to the trust will be used to fund a 529 Plan for each of Alison’s children. Please consider donating and for the many of you who knew Alison, please forward this on to others who knew and loved her as well.

Michiana Chapter of SHRM

    2017 Welcome!

    Welcome to the home page for the Michiana Chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management. We are the premier professional association for human resource professionals in the Michiana area, with over 300 members representing more than 200 employers.

    The demand for HR talent has been steadily growing as organizations focus more and more on employee satisfaction and workplace culture. Our Chapter is uniquely situated to help local HR professionals gain specialized knowledge and skills to fill that demand. We also provide SHRM and HRCI recertification credits for our events to help keep members at the top of their field. It’s just one of the reasons our Chapter and many of our members have been recognized by SHRM and the Indiana State Council for outstanding contributions to our profession.

    Please join us or attend one of our events to see for yourself what makes our Chapter special. Click here to read more about our Chapter's upcoming events.
