Dade Moeller Human Resources Generalist David Husted has joined the board of directors of the Columbia Basin Chapter of the Society for Human Resources Management. He will lead the chapter’s workforce readiness efforts, including working with local colleges, high schools, and the unemployment office to provide training and development programs; participating in mock interviews and resume writing workshops; and communicating with local businesses to understand their labor force needs.
As part of his workforce readiness responsibilities for the chapter, Husted is on the planning committee for the ACCESS Tri-Cities Building Bridges and Breaking Down Barriers Career Fair to be held in the fall. The annual event, sponsored in part by the Columbia Basin Chapter of the Society for Human Resources Management and held at the TRAC Center in Pasco, helps to bridge the gap between service providers, employers, and individuals with disabilities. In addition to a career fair, the event also features an awards breakfast to recognize companies’ efforts, as well as a training session to educate businesses about employing individuals with disabilities.
A Dade Moeller employee since 2007, Husted is a certified human resources professional, earning his certification from both the Society for Human Resources Management (SHRM-CP certification) and the Human Resources Certification Institute (PHR certification). He has been a member of the Columbia Basin Chapter since 2004 and led the chapter’s college relations efforts from 2006–2008.
Husted is active in the local sports community, including the Richland Youth Football Association, Tri-Cities Sports Officials Association, Tri-City Fever indoor football league, Washington Lacrosse Officials Association, and the Oregon Lacrosse Officials Association. When he is not assisting Dade Moeller employees with their human resources issues or supporting the local chapter of the Society for Human Resources Management, you will find Husted officiating football and lacrosse games for players ranging from 9 years old to the high school varsity level. He has been a Tri-Cities resident since 1982.
