    ​I was wondering what everyone does for their past presidents when the year ends and the new president is inducted?  We used to give ours a SHRM plaque however it was not at the VLS this year and it is no longer on the SHRM store website.  I am in the process of looking for something different and just wondered what other chpaters did in recognition.

    We gave our past president a collection of things, including a restaurant gift card, a spa day and a plant, because we really wanted to give this individual a personal expression of our appreciation, rather than the more corporate feeling plaque.

    We give a plaque with a gavel attached to it. It has an engraved plate as well with their name, title, service dates, etc.

    We give past presidents a pad folio with the SHRM logo and we are also starting to invite them as guests to one monthly program, free of charge. Thanks,

    At Fort Worth HR, we give our past presidents a lifetime membership and a personalized gift. I gave my predecessor cattle horns mounted to a plaque that thanked her for serving our association. I mean, what do you expect in Cowtown? : )
