     Welcome 2017!

    As we kick off a new year, I wanted to reach out to the membership and express my gratitude for the opportunity to lead The Southern California Relocation Council (SCRC) for the next two years as well as let you know about some of the new initiatives the new board will be exploring  for the 2017-2018 term.


    We have redesigned our Sponsorship Programs to provide both annual sponsorships as well as individual meeting sponsorships for 2017.  By making this change we are able to provide more marketing exposure and benefits to our sponsors as well as drive a slight increase in SCRC revenue which will allow us the financial resources to expand our program offerings for our members in 2017. This could include better programs including paid professional speakers.


    To kick off the year we launched a corporate engagement survey to provide our corporate members an opportunity to steer our direction in 2017-2018. This survey is capturing the impressions of our corporate member base in areas such as meeting locations, format and content. This data will be instrumental in driving greater corporate participation in 2017-2018.


    We are planning to experiment with various meeting formats for 2017 and 2018.  Without abandoning our current format of lunch meetings, we hope to experiment with other meeting options such as a full day conference, breakfast meetings and afternoon meetings to provide more options to our membership.


    Finally, as we kick off the New Year, I wanted to talk about our upcoming kick off meeting on February 1st. This event is designed to be a fun event - an evening of reconnecting with friends and colleagues and raising money for SCRC’s charities – Working Wardrobes and our member charity, Find Cures.  Highlights of this event include some fun country line dancing lessons from Kerry Kick, Orange County’s top line dancing instructor as well as our annual Silent Auction. So dress in a casual country western style if you are so inclined, bring your wallet to bid on our donated prizes and join us on the dance floor for a little organized humiliation!

    Once again I want to thank all of our members who have placed their trust in myself and the rest of the SCRC board to lead the organization for the next two years. Even more importantly, thank you for your continued support of the organization through your participation, membership fees and sponsorship dollars.  If you have any feedback or comments on how we can improve upon the programs and benefits we offer to our membership, please reach out to me at

    With gratitude,


    President, SCRC

    Ernst & Young LLP, would like to invite you to the next International Dual Career Network event in Los Angeles, CA!

    Dual careers are a reality of today’s workforce.  The International Dual Career Network (IDCN) is the first of its kind bringing together the spouses of relocated employees of multi-national and local organizations in Los Angeles to provide a mutually beneficial job-search and recruiting platform.

    The International Dual Career Network is expanding the network to include all relocated spouses (domestically relocated and international) of employees within corporations in the Los Angeles area.

    IDCN Brief overview:

    In 2011, Nestlé and Ernst and Young launched the International Dual Career Network in Switzerland.

    • IDCN is a network composed of companies who are located in the Greater Los Angeles area and are participating for at least one of the following reasons:

    • o   They have employees relocating to Los Angeles from other countries or states with trailing spouses who are also professionals and looking for jobs in the local area. 
    • o   Companies are utilizing the IDCN as a recruitment platform to hire these qualified relocated spouses for their open professional positions. 

    If you are interested in learning more about the IDCN, and how you can participate and benefit from it, we invite you to attend the next International Dual Career Network event. We encourage you to also invite other HR Professionals within your organization; Head of Human Resources, Head of Mobility, Head of Recruitment, Head of Diversity.  This could also serve as a great networking platform with a variety of key stake holders from other companies who will be in attendance.

      President's Message

    As we venture into 2014 what comes to your mind?  Have you set your goals to improve your top and/or bottom line?  Improve service delivery or possibly the challenge of hiring the best and brightest for your company in an extremely competitive field or market?  Whether it’s business development, recruiting, operations or managing global talent, relocation and the services surrounding it will most likely play a part.

    Recapping some of our successes from last year, our first meeting in March was held at Taco Bell headquarters and our corporate board member Heather Sheira kicked off the year with 10 attendees.  June was held in Costa Mesa and led by Peggy Smith of Worldwide ERC with 8 attendees. Finally, our November meeting at the Queen Mary led by Heather Sheira, had 12 corporate attendees. We look forward to keeping the momentum this year as well. 

    SCRC continually strives to address the needs of our member community and present topics that are relevant and interesting to everyone.  We have had terrific feedback on our 2013 programs and based on survey feedback, we have already set programs for 2014 that will include Economic and Real Estate updates, Understanding the Complexity of a Relocation RFP, and International Relocation Best Practices!  

    Thank you to everyone that has renewed or registered to be a part of SCRC this year. We are already at an incredible count of 78 active members YTD, 19 of which are corporate.

    I would also like to generously thank the board for their support and commitment to this organization.  It takes a special kind of person to volunteer their time and energy to a specific organization.  The global mobility world is full of fantastic individuals and I feel very lucky to have the opportunity to lead this group for the 2013 & 2014 term.  The first thing I would like you to consider is renewing your membership with SCRC if you haven’t done so already.  The organization offers so many opportunities to network with your colleagues as well earn CRP credits for educational sessions.

    We are always looking for more energy in our organization and invite any of our members to participate on various committees.  This is an exciting and productive time for SCRC so please join me in the collaboration to empower our members to succeed personally and professionally and have a fantastic 2014!  I invite you to reach out to me anytime to talk about our organization.


    Helen Maracle, President SCRC
