About the Event

You've waited all year for this one. Please attend one of IPMA-HR's most celebrated events, the Past President's Dinner. You are sure to see old friends and meet new ones as we enjoy a delicious meal and drinks in the cozy atmosphere of Cooper's Hawk.

We are extremely excited that our featured speaker for this event will be Gina M. Grosso, who most recently served as the equivalent of the Air Force’s CHRO, with the title Deputy Chief of Staff for Manpower, Personnel, and Services.  In this role, Gina impacted 670,000 airmen and their families across the entire human capital lifecycle; she led 3,500 department employees; and oversaw a $758M budget.  


Gina’s tenure can best be described as a period of historical change during which personnel policies and programs moved from industrial era personnel management to 21st century talent management practices that were critical to attracting and retaining an all-volunteer Force. Examples of her vision and leadership include:  opening all positions to women that were previously closed, fully integrating the Force for the first time in history; implementing the Blended Retirement System, the most significant change to the retirement system in 71 years that now provides every airman who serves more than three years a portable benefit; maternity and paternity leave; her congressional testimony led to sweeping changes in the Defense Officer Personnel Management Act that undid the up or out personnel system; a new officer performance management system—the first substantive change in 30 years; the first evidence-based sexual assault prevention program; and significantly increased (+300) childcare capacity and respite care funding ($250M) for families with special needs to boost Air Force Readiness.

She will be talking to us about How to Use Data to Make HR Decisions with her impressive Air Force experience as a fantastic case example.

We look forward to hearing from Gina and seeing you at the dinner!
